Dying bottle brush tree
As it looks like my tree is slowly dying while full of blooms, should I just trim back the branches? There are new shoots near the base of the trunk but there is also algae. It rains a lot here in south Louisiana. Also some of the bark on the branches has cracked open. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
