I did not water my Italian Cypress tree in a pot enough in the 3 weeks of planting. I thought it only needed a glass of water every other day. I wasn't given any instruction from the nursery. The bottom layer of leaves/needles were starting to turn pale yellow. I quickly gave the tree 3 gallons of water yesterday and another gallon today with fertilizer after researching the Internet. Still, I don't know what I'm doing and can use some instruction. Thanks!
Your tree will appreciate a deep watering only once a week during the cooler seasons, more during warm weather. Go ahead and brush away the fallen needles and twigs and put it on a regular weekly watering schedule. Unless you see other signs of distress, it should perk up soon. You may want to prune it a bit in the early spring. Here's a helpful article:
We had planted 4 cypress trees on an elevated ground,3 feet above ground level. The trees are about 6 years old and look pale green as opposed to the deep green they should be. This is a wild guess but the the water table to far down for the roots to reach < thank you
You could be right about the water. Have you checked your trees for spider mites or other kinds of problems? You may also want to test your soil to determine whether your soil has enough acidity and follow up with fertilizing in early spring. Here are a couple articles that should help:
These appear to be seed-bearing cones that are just produced naturally as the tree grows. I don't think there's any harm in leaving them, or in removing them. You may want to remove the seeds from them and grow more trees.
I would like to know what this tree is that's growing in my garden can you help
I believe it is the Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) in the Cupressaceae (Cypress Family). Yours has a spectacular bloom.
(Apologies if this is a duplicate — something happened to my connection as I was sending) This cypress has been living in my house since late November, and was repotted probably Dec/Jan since it was outgrowing its pot. The last few weeks I’ve noticed some of the tips turning brown and/or curly. I haven’t changed its care at all except I tried to trim off the affected tips which didn’t seem to help. How can I help it be healthy?
It could be suffering transplant shock. Will this tree be going outside? Make sure it is getting enough water, indoor heat can dry out conifers quickly. Do not fertilize a cypress till it's been planted about a year.
It has dead stuff at the bottom. I want the bush as tiny as possible. Thanks

We live in San Antonio, Tx. This tree had this happen last year; we trimmed the branches off and it seemed to recover. But the browning is happening again and seems to be more aggressive. Please help. What is the cause? What should we do for it?
