The Q&A Archives: is my holly tree dieseased?

Question: My holly bery tree is 3yrs old and in Feb most of thr leaves turned a grayish brown. Will it be OK? I cut back most of the tree.

Answer: Based on your description I think it was probably just suffering from winter burn, and would probably have grown fresh new leaves this spring had you not pruned it back. Pruning will not hurt it, although it's a shame to lose all that size.
