Thats a dodgy statement! " Retrenchment being a tree in decline" that is far 
from the concept! retrenchment is a normal aging procses and involves a 
perfectly healthy but ancient or veteran tree!

The old saying what goes up must come down springs to mind, the procses of 
"growing down" is the one ted likes to use.

It's sometimes referred to as an "inner crown" as well, by Gilman and
Harris et al in the US.  Some irreputable American arborists fertilize
after testing, because they skew the analysis of the tests to indicate that
everything needs more Nitrogen Now!  No names...
