I have a grafted english walnut tree that has several dead branches this year.
It has always done well before.

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong and what I can do for the tree?

Different this year is that we had a late frost that killed off new growth this spring. All my other plants have recovered from that.
Also I usually spray my trees with neem oil and this year I haven’t.
I have been growing horse radish, daylilies and one blackberry plant under it. This year the horseradish has really taken over.

I used to grow tomatoes near it but A couple years ago I stopped planting tomatoes there and am now   growIng blackberries in that bed.

Looks ok maybe dry?  Walnuts are not good for the nightshade family.

Horse radish can spread quite well.
Watchya got in that poodle gun? Anything for me? Or this tiny ad?
