Wind burn or lack of water

I agree with Moon Grower, I think I would cut the dead bits back, and give it a dilute liquid feed, and depending on how long it's been in the same pot, it may need moved on into a slightly bigger pot. It may also need moved to a more sheltered position as well, if that's possible!

'White spots on the trunk' could be scale insect infestation - I can't see them in the photos you've provided, so can't be sure. How big is the pot the plant is in?
