Is my Jacaranda dead? (Or dying)

Posted 916 days ago

When I moved in, I inherited two Jacaranda trees, one of these blooms very well and covers a large section of the backyard with pretty purple flowers each year. However the other is in a questionable state. A very large major branch broke off it last year (about 6m long) and luckily no kids were underneath it. It does bloom a little bit but only at the very top maybe 5-10% of the area the other similar tree covers. Also the trunk looks like it is starting to fall apart, not sure what symptoms I should be looking for to diagnose whether this tree is on its last legs.
