Q.I Cut The Head Off My Lollipop Bay Tree Will It Grow Back?

Zone Dumfriesshire | Joe.lany27 added on September 21, 2020 | Answered

I have 2 lollipop bay tree around 140cm tall planted in a pot each that I have had for around 7 years. One is doing great the other looks dead. All the leaves turned brown. I cut into the stalk which was still green so I have cut the head with all the dead leaves off. I didn’t think it through as now I’m just left with the stalk. Will the leaves ever grow back?

It is possible. It sounds like an issue that needed to be corrected with feeding, though. That or a fungal infection. I am unable to say for certain without seeing the damage.
