Is my Bramley Apple Tree dead?
Hello all, please can you help?
I have an ancient Bramley Apple tree which I think is dying. Last year it produced tiny apples. The apples have reduced in size as the years are going on. Last year I also noticed that several of the branches have the bark peeling off them and the branches look as if they are dying if not dead. This year I note that not one of the branches seems to have produced any buds or leaves. I haven't pruned the tree and I am wondering if I have neglected it. The tree has been with us for twenty years, but with our previous homeowner for several previous years. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
