    Over the last 10 years I’ve had no issues in the backyard but after this winter I’ve had 3 out of 4 cypress die and also my Azaleas as well as some other threes- any suggestions on how I can figure out what is going on?
    On the image below- that is what the cypress looked like and it spread to the others and now spreading to azaleas- can’t find any bugs

    our evergreens have been dying like crazy as well. The company that came out to deal with them said there is something going around killing them from the roots. Ours were about 15 years old. One has survived but it's just barely holding on.

    Yea that is exactly what happened to 2 of my large Arborvitae this winter. I have a row of them planted since 2006. Great every year and then all of a sudden this winter one of them turns brown rather quickly... then it seems to spread to the next 2 at varying levels.

    I tried to research... read about winter blight and moisture levels but really I have no clue. Fungus of some kind? I am worried that it will spread so I trimmed in an attempt to stop the spread. I put some fertilizer spikes down this past weekend.

    Any horticulturists is the neighborhood want a challenge? What happened this past winter that was so different? Too wet?
