Hi
Just wondering if anyone knows the name of this tree.
Can it be saved? Sorry picture is only of the top part. is it dead or diseased? Parts of brown throughout it. grows to about 8 foot or so.
Any comments welcome.
Regards Michelle

not a great pic but looks like a Thuja, If it does not green up over the summer it is dead, these dead branches will not grow back it may fill in but i would not hold out much hope for it, looks like wind burn or it could be something in the soil like honey fungus, Interesting to hear what others think,

Many thanks for your reply. Here is another pic of the bottom of the tree. Cant get full picture as too large to upload.

Think you are right greengage. I had a couple of Thuja that got scorched by winter winds not long after I planted them. They looked like that - and never really recovered.

You could try trimming it back, though not into old wood, and as greengage says it may recover and fill in the bald spots with new growth.

But if you take a look around the base of the tree and see any black 'bootlaces' growing on the trunk - that's honey fungus and that's bad news! Shocked

It'll never really come right. I'd remove it, unfortunately.
