Any way to save this tree?
Hello. I've got a small, 13-15 foot tree in my back yard that isn't doing so well. Last year we had a serious drought and the leaves began to turn brown and die in late July if I recall correctly. Prior to this, the tree had healthy leaves all the way up. This year it has no leaves growing up top. The base of the trunk is also looking pretty bad, almost like it was stripped off on one side. The trunk has been this way for at least a few years. So, my question obviously boils down to, should I try and save it, or just cut it down and start over with something new? I appreciate any advice.
