We suggest to remove the dead parts of your tree and transfer it to a bigger sized pot. Dead, broken and diseased branches should be removed as soon as possible after you notice the damage. The is most important rule for cutting back Euro trees is to never cut all green shoots from any branch since the branch will not be able to absorb sunlight and grow more.
Re-pot every year in well-draining acid soil. Early Spring is the best time to re-pot and transplant. Re-pot it into an increment of 2" pots. Example: if currently in a 6" pot transplant it to an 8" pot the following year.
