Flowering plum tree

Anonymous added on August 1, 2015 | Answered

I have a 13 year old flowering plum tree and we have noticed that some of the leaves and branches are dying, so I cut them off and more come. Please help, I don't want to lose this tree.

It could have a fungus or pests could be to blame. You can remove any dead growth and it should regrow. Look for pests and treat the tree with Neem oil (both an insecticide and fungicide) and see if this helps at all.
