loquat - not fire blight- what/why

ilmbgJune 8, 2011

I have a Loquat tree outside my condo- I do not know which variety it is. I noticed it has been looking sickly the past couple years. The condo assoc does absolutely no care to the tree.

this is what is happening:

The bark is falling off the first 6-7 feet up the trunk.

The leaves are NOT turning brown and staying on the tree at the top.

The leaves ARE dying and falling off.

There are many small holes- about 3-4mm diamiter- a woodpecker possibly?

The large amount of bark falling off and showing a rust colored wood underneath is in both large patches and small.

There has been no lawnmower.weedeater hitting the tree, as there is no grass aroung it.

I don't know how to take a picture and put it online.

I don't want to lose this tree, what to do?

Thanks

It may be freeze damage. Mine has suffered some over the past couple winters. If so, below the damage it should be good.
