The Q&A Archives: Evergreens Dying

Question: We have quite a few evergreens on our property, and several of them are dying off. We've only been here a year, and when we moved in, the trees were very much alive. I'm not too versed on what types of evergreens they are, but there are a few different types, including 10-12 ft draping type, and a few 4ft trees which are a fuller type tree with a lot more branches. One of the spots has held a lot of water recently, but the others are scattered around the property. Is there something I can do during the fall to preserve what is left of my trees?? I would hate to lose them, they really grace the property.

Answer: Unfortunately, based on the informatio in your question I can't begin to make a diagnosis of the problems, let alone identify the trees in question. Since they are important to the property and seem to be in distress, you might wish to consult with a professionally trained arborist or perhaps with your local County Extension as to what is happening and the best ways to help the trees prosper. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
