bought my house a few month ago, the apricot tree in the garden seemed fine at first and I thought it would be ok because a lot of buds appeared early, but now it seems to be dying.

Do you think it was the frost or some fungus?

Should I cut all dying branches?


Because some branches look good, while others are dying, it could be borers in the dead branches. Some borers produce waste/frass at a hole. Surface insecticide will not reach them. I have killed some by inserting a wire into the hole, if you can find the holes.
