opinion that the trouble is partly due
to the trees being-too close, and partly
to impoverishment of the soil they
stand in. The dying trees should be
cut out at once, as they can't be saved,
and an expert on tree culture should
be called in for advice as to how to
save the remainder. Young trees
should be planted wherever necessary.
