I planted an Acacia dealbata which was about 1 foot high in autum 2009. It was planted about 2 feet from a privet hedge. It has grown to approximateley 7 feet high. Because it has grown so quickly I thought it must be happy. The position we planted it would allow it to grow into a full sized tree. However, the cold weather and the snow have turned the tree brown. The flower buds have also turned brown. I live in the North West of England. Do you think it will recover and is there anthing I can try in order to save it if it dying?

Only time will tell. Don't prune it though as they don't like it. Not really a hardy tree at all so you may have lost it unfortunately.
