Any hope for half dead tree?

Asked August 15, 2017, 7:24 AM EDT

Hello, my son moved into a home with a problem tree. We don't know what it is or if we can prune it to help it recover. The photos were taken in May (when the berries produced). Is there hope? Thank you!

I would have appreciated a more recent photo but if the tree still looks that way in August, it is not going to recover. Pruning more than half the tree off will not work. I suggest you just remove the tree.
