We have a Holly which has grown into a very large tree (about 25 feet). Despite having a healthy berry crop this winter, it started to lose a huge number of leaves. This has resulted in huge bare spots where you can see straight through the tree. I know this is an exotic species but it was here when we moved to the house and it is an important privacy tree for us. Is there anything we can do? Thank you, Krista De Groot
