Just went and took a photo and can't upload it.....grr. But I now find that its maybe 18 years old, about 10ft high. The trunk and one main branch are less 'peely' but two other branches look exactly as they should. I have removed an old tie which was too tight, but doesn't seem to have damaged it so just in time. The other tree which is the same age is about 30 feet high, in a much better place. So, if anyone knows if new growth will look very different (more vigorous) I would be grateful to know. Thanks for existing replies.
