Catawba, NC
Question by jalexander0

I have been told that my hillside of blue pacific juniper is suffering from root rot. The plants are approx. 2 yrs old, and most are actually growing really well, but one by one they are turning brown from the center of the plant and dying. they are on a northern hillside, recently created from a mixture of red clay and sand from a lake bottom (the hill goes down toward the lake.

How do I treat this hillside? it is very large, and I'm hoping not to have to start all over with this huge project!

Since you have such an extensive planting, I would strongly suggest you contact your county extension for a specific analysis and identification of the problem as well as their most up to date suggestions as to what to do about it. This is potentially rather serious. Their telephone number is 465-8240.
