I've moved to the Alexandria from Bombay a couple of years ago and moved into a house with a garden just about a year ago. No garden in Bombay, space is at a premium.

I noticed that these trees had leaves last year, but this spring no leaves have sprouted on the branches.

Also the growth at the foot of the trees is much more dense.

How do I save these trees? Is there any application which will get rid of the growth? And any other procedure I need to do?

Please guide me, I hate seeing trees suffer.

Thanks

Have a great day
Jagdish

Welcome!

Without a photo, this is just a guess....

It sounds like your tree was grafted but for some reason, the top has died. What you see are shoots from the roots. You can pull off the shoots at the base but, it won't bring the top grafted part back.

Thank you for the photos. Forget everything I said earlier. Hilarious!

There is more than one type of tree there (pine and something else), I see leaves and pine needles. The stuff on the ground are vines that are climbing the trees. I can see Virginia Creeper and I think, Boston Ivy.

The trees, as far as I can see, aren't dead but, have a lot of dead wood in them. You can help the trees but not allowing the vines to climb the tree trunks.

Just snip the bottom vines with a hand pruner and the vines will die. After a couple of weeks the vines can be pulled down without hurting the the trees anymore than they already are. .
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
