How can I save a weeping lilly pilly (waterhousea floribunda) that a neighbour admitted to spraying glysphospate weed killer on the roots.

Will these hedges in the middle survive or is there anyway to save them? All the leaves are dying at the top and it appears to be spreading. Will poison accidently applied to the roots cause this or is it more likely that my neighbour has actually had to spray the folate to cause this damage?

The spraying of roots with glysophate will not affect the trees. He had to of sprayed the foliage as well or if it were a windy day, the foliage was accidentally sprayed by wind drift. I would wait and see. It is very possible that the plants will regrow the leaves. Glysophate usually does not affect shrubs and trees as severely as it does to weeds and grasses.
