Chop this kousa?
I'm guessing this tree didn't get its winter wrapping when it was young because this damage is on the southwest side. We haven't had the house for a long time so I don't know how old the tree is. It leafs out ok and is blooming right now but the branches are shorter on the affected side. Is it doomed? We are borrowing a chainsaw for the week and if it's only got a few years left I would rather chop it now.
Thanks in advance
