Diseased Prune Cut?

You may get different opinions but, unless you can remove all dead stuff and still leave enough live tree, the rot will spread.Ssorry. I hate to see a tree go when it's still loved.

I have 4 pairs, (well 3 now, the other pair went through the shredder)

The best are the unbranded ones OH got from Screwfix a couple of years ago. They don't lock up, ever.

Midwinter Fire took about 12 years to take off for me. I could do with a bit of invasiveness from 'Flavimera' (might have mis-spelled that) but still waiting. There's plenty of room, I keep telling it

I'd cut it back to good wood when the worst of the winter is over

Don't worry about the insects, they're just scavenging

Horse chestnuts don't respond well to cutting back, you get more die back to follow. Your dead branch was probably in response to previous cutting back or other damage. It looks like a pollarded tree, a treatment  Horse chestnuts don't appreciate.

I fear rot is setting in

Hi Vic

In my experience they take longer to get going. Unless it's going downhill I'd give it another year

The disadvantage of Kindle is that it doesn't do UK library books
