elm tree query
Can you help I moved to a house with a 3-4metre elm tree which has looked really healthy until this spring. Each year we have had it pruned to keep it small. It is in the corner of the garden close to some old apple trees (3m height so not too large)
First I noticed that the mistletoe that was attached to it had dried up, gone crispy and died, so I cut it off. Now the top new branches of the tree, the leaves are all brown and shrivelled and look dead, lower leaves are starting to brown at the edges.
I am a very amateur gardener so would appreciate any advice on this.
