Hi and welcome to the forum :)

Can you post pictures of the plants and tank?

Are you adding aquarium plant fertiliser?
How much CO2 are you adding?

Maybe lack of light on that side, or the tree is leaching something gross out of the wood on that side. But I would have thought anything coming out of the wood would be all over the tree branch

You should monitor the fertiliser levels at least a couple of times a week to make sure the plants aren't using it all up in a few days and then going without fertiliser for the rest of the week. If that happens they will have light and CO2 but no fertiliser.
