I have 2 large healthy Puka trees in totally different gardens on our section. They are 20 years old. They are both dying. The seed pods and shoots are soft and brown and rotten. The leaves are yellowing and dropping off. What is happening? Id there some kind of fungus causing this? Or is it old age?

Hi Carolyn, They can suffer from dieback, which can be cut out but you would need to cut into good hard wood, considering they are both doing it is most likely tied in with the age as well. You could try giving the trees a good prune and see how they react to this. If you do it fairly soon it might produce some Autumn growth, if not it might be time to replace.

Thanks the Palmers Team
