Medium_img_0373 We have a Manchurian Pear tree that seems to be dying from the top down? Its 10+ years old. Can it be saved?

We have a Manchurian Pear tree located in Canberra which is 10+ years old and 5-6 metres tall. It's been good up till the last Spring when there was a major lack of leaves, particularly on the higher branches. It's now moving to buds, but only on the lowest branches and the top appears to be dying with no buds at all. Is there anything we can do?

Answer: Hi Deborah,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s hard to tell from the picture that there is dieback of the tree, however, it would be the best to prune of any dieback section to prevent further disease infection. Considering the size of the tree, I would suggest seeking your local Arborists assistance.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
