I can't identify the problem without seeing it, but it sounds like a fungus from a root rot. Your neighbor might want to take a sample to your local cooperative extension for positive diagnosis. (University of Tennessee Hamblin County Cooperative Extension, 511 W. 2nd North Street Room 204, Morristown, TN 37814-3997 phone 423-586-6111). Helpful folks there can identify the problem and suggest remedies. Good luck with the shrubs!
