I have a Common Walnut (diameter 440mm at 1.5m above the ground) in my garden that dropped approx 50% of its leaves over the summer of 2019. This year (2020) the same tree leafed very weakly - approx 30% of normal leaf cover. Then in June/July it has gradually dropped all its leaves and partly grown nuts/fruit. Over recent years the tree has started to be crowded out by others (younger) trees from a neighbouring property. Should I ask for the neighbouring trees to be pruned? Also - this year (2020) in the same part of the garden another tree a Pissards Plum (diameter 400mm at 1.5m above ground) has leafed weakly and then in July also dropped most of its leaves. This tree is not crowded by other trees. I am concerned about the condition of the Walnut (it has no leaves) but I am now also concerned that the Pissards Plum is going the same way. Could it be the same problem (whether light, insect/pest, blight/dieback, etc) causing both trees to drop their leaves? Is there anything I could do to help the trees recover or investigate what is causing them to drop? Thank you for any help.
