lost its leading shoot
This is a golden ash, given to me with no name. It's grafted, presumably onto ordinary ash. The leading shot has died back.
Should I leave it to sort itself out, cut it out and leave the rest, prune just leaving one shoot or cut it back further. There's not obvious new leader, they're all at much the same angle. I don't think this is ash die back. It's been where it is for 2 years and until this summer it was very dry for all that time. I wasn't very diligent with watering and this was the result.
