Hi Jules

Could you tell me when your other trees died and if the stumps are still there

What colour are the blotches you are talking about

Is there any split bark at the bottom of the trunk

Shrinking Violets advice is one possibility

I have just come across this thread again and I see that another 2 are in agreeance with smokin donkeys advice

I am going to email Daniel Haynes personally to get this thread removed due to safety issues with the advice given by the above and concerning Pushkin2

First of all nobody has given Pushkin2 any advice on any safety gear he would have to wear while operating a Brush Cutter which can be extremely dangerous and volatile

Secondly the advice given was for Pushkin2 to go into an area approximately half an acre that has not been touched in years to operate a Brush Cutter, into foliage that will be probably be head height

In this area could be logs covered in foliage, rocks covered in moss, and iron railings or other metal objects hidden in ivy, this would be extremely dangerous if any of those was hit by a metal blade

As I have plenty of experience in this field and know the risks, I will ask Daniel Haynes to remove this thread due to health and safety reasons

I will bump this up periodically in the hope that Pushkin2 can see this and then I will email Daniel Haynes

Hi Adrian

It looks more like Nitrogen deficiency, Nitrogen deficiency gives the leaves a more bleached look, like the pics above

Hi Mark

Is there any bark on your trunk splitting, any white substance on your branches, any powdery mildew on your leaves your pictures are inconclusive, any leaves curling, could you do a crosscut of one of your dead twigs and tell me if there is brown rings inside

Hi Froggit

There is not much you can do with it, it does not kill the plant and will grow through it

You will get more info on it on the RHS website
