Somerset, United Kingdom
My Acer has delveloped Coral Spot over the past two years. I've washed the plant several times and carried out several cuts to try and halt the spread of this.
Unfortunately each year the plant loses a branch or two and now I think the only way to save the plant is to cut through the main trunk (eek), just above where I have some small branches forming.
Is it safe to do this, is this my last resort, when would be the best time to do this?
