International Bonsai Master Michael Hagedorn has a new article out titled “Revisiting A Dead-Topped Azalea-“. In this article Michael takes you through the steps to restore a large Azalea back to health. One of our local members has a large tree just like this one. The tree was being watched and cared for by another group and the top of the tree died back down the trunk. I have added the article to the Azaleas Bonsai page under Deciduous and Bonsai Tree Information pages.
