Q.Blue spruce trees

cindy4396 added on September 7, 2017 | Answered

I recently transplanted a blue spruce. The plant is only about 12-15 inches tall. The top of the tree is losing needles, but the bottom looks fine. Will the tree re-grow needles in the top part of the tree? Does this mean that the tree is dead or dying?

This sounds like a possibnle watering issue. Make sure the soil remains moist. Not wet, and not overly dry. Soil can dry out some between watering. If you are concerned about a possible fungal infection, then I would recommend an antifungal, such as wettable sulfur, rosemary oil, cinnamon, neem oil, lavendar oil, or garlic oil. There are many synthetic fungicides as well. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/colorado-blue-spruce/care-for-colorado-spruce.htm
