Monkey Puzzle gone brown

  1. My monkey puzzle had two leaders, I cut off the weaker one and the following year the tree began turning brown from the point of the cut. Below the cut it is perfectly green and healthy, above the cut the brown has spread from the trunk outwards and now only little green tips are left and some of those are going brown. At the point of the cut, new shoots have begun sprouting. Should I cut off the brown leader and let these healthy shoots become leaders?
