My Viburnum Bodnantense Dawn is about 30 years old and approx. 10 feet tall. Over the years I have taken off the lower branches to lift the canopy which has worked really well. However after last winter two of the large trunks growing from ground level appear to have died and I am worried that I might lose the whole plant which would leave a huge gap. Any ideas if the rest of the plant might survive - it looks healthy apart from the two trunks that have died. Thank you very much.

Reply from Mrs. S. M. Bentley

My experience of elderly viburnums is that they recover well, if slowly, from being cut down
