Return to Trees & Shrubs

Our cottonwood provides the ONLY shade to the back of our house, and 2 years ago it developed a "weeping" sore - exactly as someone else has described. By the end of last summer 2/3rds of the tree had no leaves on it. Only a small green area could be seen at the top 1/3rd of the tree, so we were certain that it was dying. We hated the thought of parting with that tree, but arranged to have it removed in February. Important circumstances delayed the tree removal, and now the entire tree is covered with buds! DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE TREE ISN'T DYING AFTER ALL????? We would love to have your professional imput. Thank you, Linda Green
