Apricot tree still did not flower and does not have any leaves
My apricot tree of 4-5 years was doing ok but in August of last year its leaves turned light green (lighter compared to other apricot trees). I think it also lost leaves earlier than other apricot trees in the fall. This year in spring it had flower buds like other apricot trees but buds on this tree never opened. There are no leaves either even now. If I scratch trunk I see green, not brown. I do not see any visible signs of fungus on its bark. Is the tree need to be removed or I need to wait till next year with hope it will wake up? It is very beautiful tree, I do not want to kill it if it possible to save it.
Thank you for advice!
