Half dead acer

Sheila O\’Hanlon asked 6 years ago

This Acer has being dying down one side over the past few years. I have cut off the branches as they died. There are now only the leaves shown left & these look fairly healthy. Can you tell me what has happened & if the tree might fully recover?

This is likely to be a fungal disease, possibly coral spot fungus or botrytis.

It is unlikley to fully recover as it has been severely damaged.  It happens to occasional trees.
