sick Tulip tree (liriodendron tulipifera)
Probably a rhetorical question, but...
I planted a tulip tree about 5 years ago. It has readily reached 12 ft in height, but I have now noticed a blackening around the base of the trunk, and the upper leaf edges are showing signs of 'burning'.
Is it time to cut it down or is there any chance of saving it?
(No hard frosts or waterlogging here)
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
