The Q&A Archives: Myrtle tree trunks dying

Question: I have three myrtle trees planted on a slight grade above a wall along driveway. Last year they looked beautiful. This year, two of them have entire trunks which have died. Other trunks on the same two trees seem fine. Is it b/c we put black fabric weed blocker in the area? Or did I harm the trees when I pruned them? (I followed advice I read in Southern Living Magazine).
