Q.Frangipani – Rotting Or Ok?
Hello we lost a Frangipani Branch (snapped off when tree fell on potted plant) – it looked rotten after a few months so I’ve kept cutting it back- this is what the cross section looks like. Should I keep cutting back or stop? Thanks

It has heart rot. There are a few fungi that can cause this. There is no cure, at this stage, unfortunately.
You can choose to leave it to die, naturally, or you can cut it down. Either way, will not cause any more harm to the area, or soil.
Once the tree is gone, treat the area with a fungicide to kill off any spores in the area. This article will help:
