I was wondering if you could help me with a problem I am having with the
maple tree in my front garden.* It is a fairly large tree (about the
height of the house) and is probably around 25-30 years old.
Since I moved in around 4 years ago, it has always had very thick, green
leaves every year.* Last weekend,*
I had a professional out to cut it
back (basically reducing the height) because it was getting quite tall.*
This week, however, I have noticed that all of the leaves near the top
of the tree in the middle (mainly where it was cut) have gone brown and
wilted (a few have fallen off).*
As the week has gone on, I have noticed
more and more of the leaves on the tree are turning brown and wilting,
not just where the tree has been cut but also on the lower and outer
Is this normal when you cut back a maple tree?* If so, will the leaves
grow back this year?
If this is not normal, does anyone know what this could be and how I can
fix it??* I was hoping to sell the house*
this summer*and I don't want a
tree in my front garden that looks like it is dying.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!* If it makes any difference, I
live in the West Midlands, UK.
Thanks very much
