I'll need to make an assessment of what is the cause, and the clients expectation of the tree. It may be due to ground conditions, be suffering from a pest or disease, decay from wounds or the tree may be even be over-mature by which we mean due to its age or size it is not able to perform as intended anymore.

However, Many issues are treatable.

As above, there can be many reasons for its decline. A site visit is the first port of call to assess whats going on.

Trees have life stages, from saplings to mature veterans and each stage is identifiable. Growth of trees can be assessed and this may vary according to biotic (pest, disease, browsing) or abiotic stress (root damage, compaction, salt and mower damage) which may cause symptoms of dying.

I would start at the roots..mulching, de-compaction with a fork or airspade and/or feed with nutrients. This may help recovery.

Images of the tree roots, trunk and canopy are useful (when in leaf) for health assessments.

It sounds as if the tree is in poor health.

Without a tree survey looking at many factors, it is impossible to say. It is rarely one factor that leads to the failure of a tree.

I can come and assess your tree if you’d like me to.

Many thanks
