Bill,
      I gather this one is in heavy clay soil subject to flooding and drying 
out, I'm waiting to see if I get instructed and can visit the site to get 
soil samples etc

Hi Will,

You may be right, but my 'successful' tree, which was a small 5l pot 
specimen, was planted in really rubbish site conditions and has most likely 
been subjected to some fairly questionable pruning practices/care, possibly 
even including de-icing salt on the paved entrance to the church. Its 
position west of the building though has always always protected it from 
those early morning rays...

Regards,

Bill

is down to a combination of poor soil, exposure, pruning, poor trees 
and probable lack of care, its going to make an interesting case
