English Linden Tree Dying?

Clammypollack added on May 8, 2017 | Answered

Our 100+ year old english linden tree has about 10% of the branches dying. In our 20 years living here we have never seen this many branches die. It has been lopsided the last two years with good leaf growth on half the tree and stunted leaf growth on the other. The dead branches are equally dispersed throughout the tree. Could it be diseased or dying?

It sounds like either a borer problem or the tree roots on the barren side may be girdled. Either way, the best course of action is to call a certified arborist to diagnose it.
