How can I save my beloved flower tree from dying?
(Vancouver, BC, Canada)
Last year full bloom
I hope you can help me to save my tree. I have enjoyed its beautiful flowers and shade in my garden for about 20 years until this year. Normally, it is now time for it to blossom, but this year, strangely almost all of its leaves keep falling and only a small cluster of flower showing. I don't know the name of the tree, and whether or not it is suffering some sort of disease, so I worry very much that the tree may die.
I am attaching a picture of the tree taken last year at it full bloom. There is almost no leave on it anymore these days.
Looking forward to your advice at the soonest.
