Half-dead crepe myrtle (sniff)
Hi, I'm in Flemington in Hunterdon County. My Dynamite crepe myrtle is just now starting to bud, but only on half the tree. I think I've lost one whole trunk, the biggest one. Do I cut the dead one all the way to the ground? If so, will doing something that drastic be too hard on the tree and kill the rest?
Any help is appreciated!
