I'd leave it and see what happens. That's what I'm doing with mine.

It's sad isn't it.
I gave up on my 7 (sob) year-old cordyline sad
Bought a new one.
It's very small!!

When we bought our house we had a big (10+ ft) Cordyline with three branches at the top, all three branches dead now and we have been discussing what to do too.

We adopted the 'wait and see' option, and it is sprouting again from gound level, so is it best to cut the trunk right down to the ground now MrsMagnolia?

Good thinking MrsMagnolia hadn't really considered the rotting/disease/danger aspects, will let DH at it with the axe then! I was really surprised as we were sure it was dead, but my Mum said wait and see! Thanks for your help smile
