Is my Bramley Apple Tree dead?

Posted: 29/04/2013 at 16:47

Thank you daffygardener for your advice.  I am in the South of England - Dorset.  I shall definately aerate the soil around the tree (was planning on doing the rest of my lawn anyway- just psyching myself up for the delightful job of doing it!)  I shall also treat my tree to a good mulch and feed.  I shall be keeping my fingers crossed.  Many thanks once again

Hello Littlemoney, I spotted some buds on the tree today,so very happy.  I planted some bulbs around the tree a few years ago and I wonder if they are sapping valuable nutrients from the soil which would normally be for the tree.  I haven't been feeding the tree, but will definitely start to do this, as well as an annual prune.  Thank you so much for your advice.

Many thanks for your replies, I think you may be right about the cold weather and our trees not being in leaf yet.  Am really hoping to bring my tree back to life somehow, it has been such a lovely feature in our garden and for so many years.  Will be mega sad if it's on it's last legs.

Hello all, please can you help?

I have an ancient Bramley Apple tree which I think is dying.  Last year it produced tiny apples.  The apples have reduced in size as the years are going on.  Last year I also noticed that several of the branches have the bark peeling off them and the branches look as if they are dying if not dead.  This year I note that not one of the branches seems to have produced any buds or leaves. I haven't pruned the tree and I am wondering if I have neglected it.  The tree has been with us for twenty years, but with our previous homeowner for several previous years.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
