    I am hoping someone can help us... We have this Arbutus tree in our yard that has been growing beautifully for years, but just this last year all the leaves have gone brown and the tree looks like it dying. At the very top though the leaves are green?

    Thank you for any suggestions

    This is now common in the region. On a friend's property they do this every winter. It's a pathogenic infestation. Probably you are left with cutting the tree down.
