my cordyline is now about 5years old is about 7feet tall and split into 4 seperate branchs from trunk all the leaves seem to be dieing but has 3 new shoots at bottem of trunk from soil what shall i do do i cut the trunk or not



It sounds as though it died from cold last winter, like thousands of others. As you've got new growth coming from the bottom, I'd cut off the trunk(s) that are dead and let the new shoots take over.
