Thx to Nj law,if a branch falls off in neighbors yard he is responsible,
No, the branch fell onto my neighbour`s field which is close to my property. His own house is about 500 metres away. The branch crushed some growing wheat which was still so young it recuparated easily and when I looked at that spot just before harvest, it didn`t differ from the rest.
Do the branches have any black dots?
Nope. I read a lot about possible diseases, fungi etc but found none of the symptoms on the tree. When I try to break its twigs, they are still flexible, like in a living plant, not dry like in a dead one. The showdown will take place in spring next year - we`ll see if it is able to grow new needles.
