Please can anyone offer some advice? We used to have the most beautiful Jacaranda tree. I absolutely loved it. My husband and his father deemed it necessary to prune the beauty and, after 18 months, the growth is very odd-- the fronds of the tree keep just falling off along with any new "bud" growth and it makes me so sad to see it. I keep apologising to it!!! Can anyone offer any advice? How long, is it normal, anything I can do to help it grow better? Anything - desperate for my beautiful tree back :( I am pretty sure you will be able to tell which is the before and after photo.

This is a pretty devastating chop job for this tree. It may recover, but I would start worrying if after two years you don't see much recovery. That's about how long it will take this tree to recover from the damage done here.
Just keep caring for it as usual. (It doesn't really need much care, anyway.) This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/jacaranda/jacaranda-tree-information.htm
