Camellia tree looks sick.

Large well established camellia tree has had no flowers, maybe budworm? But buds too high to be sprayed individually. Small section bottom to top has no leaves. Whole tree looks sick, Some leaves yellow. Adjacent well established native has lost leaves on top. What do you suggest? Can they be returned to health?

Looks like the Camellia will need a prune to remove any of the deadwood on top, which will also help to thicken up the bottom stems.
