Angry Half tree didn't bloom

Hello,

I have a Japanese tree in my front yard(not sure about name,7 feet tall,shape like a big umbrella). Half of the tree bloomed and the green leaves grew up, but the other half has no leaves. I am very confused. What is going on? Anyone idea?

Thanks in advance.

Lawn looks the same all around? Bark is sound all around?

Sometimes when a tree is planted in a hole that is too small to accommodate the roots, the roots end up wound around the base of the tree. Years later when the roots have gotten larger they literally choke the tree to death.

Some trees start out with disfigured roots because they were root bound in containers and roots started girdling at the nursery. In later years, the roots enlarge and strangle the tree.

Usually the first sign of root girdling is the decline of a branch or branches on one side of the tree. Each year the tree declines more until finally one side of the tree is dead. You can check the trunk at the soil line for girdled roots. If trunk at soil line has buttressed (flared out), then your tree most likely has girdled roots.

Insects, disease, or drought could also be reasons for the die out. Excessive moisture and poor drainage, trunk damage, soil compaction, or spray injury could be culprits. If tree is located near the septic, chemicals absorbed by roots can result in die out on the side usually closest to the tank. If tree is not native to the area, extremes of heat and cold can take a toll.
