I'm from Michigan, and I'm in an area surrounded by trees.... LOTS of trees.
Within the last 5 years or so, my zip code has been eaten half bare from beetles and viruses. All of my(our) pine trees are dying. I've recently planted some Emerald Green Arborvitae trees behind my dying pine trees because it was the size I wanted and I've been told it's resistant to the beetles and viruses in our area.
Now my question...
I've noticed some neighbors down the road are losing their Emerald's also. However, we had a very hot and dry summer this year, so I was thinking it was due to a lack of water. My usual go to Nurseries are now closed. Any tips on how to keep these babies going?? Mine look fine so far, but they have only been in ground for about 3 or 4 months.
Lord please let this seed not be a weed!

We lost our arbovitaes to spider mites, but you might want to check for bagworms or other insects.

KK. I'll keep an eye out on mine for those.
The pine trees are nearly dead. It's only a matter of time. Their so far gone, I'm not going to put it through any extensive treatments.
