How can I know what's dead wood?
Hi , I inherited a beautiful tree peony with my new home. Over the last three years it seems to be less and less full. I'm afraid to cut the wood stems/branches ... I'm not confident it's dead seeing how it all looks the same except for the fact that some branches have no growth on them. Please help, I love this tree and am afraid that its dying over time. I have attached photos, the mid section of the tree is all but gone, it was full with tons of blooms in previous years. I just don't know what's wrong. Thanks for any advice.
