Redbud tree -- replace or let it grow?
This redbud replaced another redbud that died while under warranty. This redbud seemed to have died in the top trunk and branches, but was still alive in the lower trunk and branches. I cut off the dead trunk and dead branches, and left the tree to see what would happen this Spring. It is definitely alive, but I don't know how this tree will end up growing. Will it become a healthy tree? Or will it be stunted and misshapen? Should I replace it, or let it grow?
