Is my Arbutus dead ?
My Arbutus (Strawberry Tree) appears to be dead. The trunk and many branches have severe splits in them. the leaves have dried up and finally turned brown.
The tree was planted about 25 years ago on the top of a small bank. A honeysuckle has taken to growing through it a few years ago. There were many fruits last Autumn but now it seems it has just died. Look forward to hearing your comments on what has happened and possible causes and if anything can be done.
