I live in a London suburb/Kent area and have had a Robinia for over 25years in the garden and it has always delighted us with its colour and dappled shade Had noticed in the last 2 to 3 years that leaves seemed smaller and die back has always been a bit of a problem but wasn't too concerned. However in the storm last weekend my magnificant tree was blown completely over heaving up its roots and is currently being chopped up and removed. I wondered why it went down when other trees around us in much more full leaf remained. Guess it must have been due to the disease. Very sad.
