Has my Victoria plum tree started to die?
I have had this Victoria Plum tree for 10 years and have always had good crops on alternative years. This year one side of the tree looks as though it has started to die. I have already cut out one large branch that looked dead and now note that another has died. I do have few plums on the top of the tree and leaves look reasonable healthy. The weather in South UK has been extremely dry and may be a cause. I cannot see any fungus or bacteria on the tree. Should I just cut out this branch as I did before? Any advise would be appreciated. I love Victoria Plums!!!
