I plant a lot of trees with good success, but I'm on my fourth Arborvitae in
spot on the west side of my house (about half day sun). Living here 20 years I
am sure there was no contamination on that spot. Just across the sidewalk is
Arborvitae that has survived for several years now. Originally there were Red
Cedars growing in these places, but I pulled them out about 8 years ago when a
problem with Apple Cedar Rust developed. The last tree was planted last fall
started browning out over the winter. It may be wind burn, but everything
(grass, yew bushes, apple trees, and the other Arborvitae) are unaffected. This
variety is supposed to be hearty, but I think they are susceptible to damage for
their first and possibly second year after planting. Well, I am waiting for
to get in their trees and maybe they will honor their exchange pollicy (this
tree was a replacement). I want to stick with Arborvitae to balance off the
the other side of the entrance walk and don't want to spend a bundle on a 5 foot
exotic evergreen. Any ideas on how to prevent another dead tree?
Oh, I cannot resist any longer.....
No! M u s t r e s i s t...
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results
NO. I shall resist.
