Chestnut Trees

Q.Our huge big Chestnut Tree didn’t have any leaves on it this season, bark is slowly peeling off……looks dead!

If we trim it half way down, will it re grow back to its healthy stage again re new leaves? Hubby thinks maybe the Antifreeze that he spilt on the ground may have ruined it?

That will do it. It is quite dangerous to wildlife, vegetation, and soil microbes.

There is likely no hope for that tree, but it never hurts to make an attempt.
