South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I have an Acer Katsura tree about 2 years old. It was fine last year, but this year it has lots of bare stems from around the middle of the main stem up to the top. There are new leaves from earth level up to halfway but nothing above that. Should I cut it off above the new leaves leaving just the bottom 2 foot, or wait a little longer to see what happens. The branches all over seem to have some fungus or mould on them, but it has always been like that, even last year when it leafed really well. Hope you someone can help.
