We have ceanothus..... tree! Its approx. 14ft+ high and it looks like a Joshua tree ; in that the remaining green canopy is some 5ft high and mushroom like. Lots of the branches underneath are dead wood....what can we do?
We would like to cut all the canopy off and just leave the trunk and some main branches in the hope it would re-generate and give new life.....as it is /was glorious in its day in colour and bee activity.
Would be grateful if anyone has had a similar problem or could offer advice or do we get rid of and replant
