Yes I know it isn't a bonsai but I need some help. This the trunk of a lilac tree that is probably about 30 years old. The last couple of years it has seem to be declining. Fewer flowers, fewer leaves etc. I have read about lilacs shreddig their bark etc but the trunk appears weird to me. Can you take a look at the photos and see if they offer any clues? Thanks 20170409_195726.jpg 20170409_195726.jpg 20170409_195744.jpg 20170409_195752.jpg

Thanks for the opinions. It is too large to dig, maybe although it has been in that spot for 20+ years it is a nutrition or water problem. Just seems weird that it is such a gradual problem. Thanks again.
