He Said / She Said

Alan: What the heck are you doing?

Kim: It is ugly and an eyesore. The tree has been like this for two years, it isn't getting better. Cutting off the dead branches is the only option left.

Alan: Why are you still cutting?

Kim: It needs to be even, those last 2 branches need to go. It looks lopsided.

Alan: Those 2 branches are still 1/2 alive. I prefer you leave them.

What do you say? Should I have cut off the dead ones? Should the last 2 stay or should they go?

  1. We have bush that ended up just like that. I'm thinking it must be an infection. The dead parts were cut out of the middle, then eventually the bottom parts died and now the top parts. There are 2 branches at the very bottom that are still green, but I only give them one more year. We're replacing that bush this year with a dwarf lilac.
