Tree in shock?
Hi all, this is my first post so please be kind if I sound very stupid! I have a large sumack/rhus tree in my garden, which has been here since I moved in 21 years ago. It has doubled in height and flourished every year since then. However, last year, the weight of the branches split the trunk vertically, and although it continued to leaf (?) through the summer, this year it has not grown any leaves at all. It has not thrown out any shoots from the roots either, which is very unusual. Can a tree go into shock, and do you think it will recover?
Thank you for any suggestions, any advice is appreciated.
