Acacia dealbata help

snakemanjimApril 22, 2009

I've got about a 12 foot a. dealbata that for the most part got freeze-dried this winter. Yesterday I did the scratch test on the bottom 2 inches of the trunk & there is clear & unmistakable green live tissue down there. The rest of the tree is dead & even starting to split in places.

My question is, can I just leave it as is & let it do it's own thing or will I need to cut it down to the live part in order to get it to regrow?

Thanks in advance!

Keep the green. Since it is starting to break, remove the rest.
