Q.Our Trees Are Dying And We Don‘t Know Why Or How To Fix It

Zone London | s_speiser5 added on May 10, 2020 | Answered

We moved to our House in London some months ago, and the two trees in front of our house were already there. They had some brown leaves already but it got very much worse now and there are also some webs. In the pot there was a lot of grass and some other plants which I ripped out now. I am an absolute gardening beginner, I don‘t even know the species of the tree or what soil it needs or how much water. Would appreciate any help on how I can help the trees very much. I included some pictures. Thank you very much in advance, Kind regards

Should you still want to attempt, which may give you a few more years of life from it, you will need to treat with a fungicide yearly, as well as keep up with pruning and insect control. Diseased shrubs are not resistant to such attacks.

Here are some articles that will help:
