Q.

What is wrong with my juniper bushes?

Zone 4, northern NH | amybpage added on July 18, 2015 | Answered

I have had these juniper bushes for a few years. This year many of the limbs are turning brown and look dead. I thought it was a lack of water, so started watering them more frequently, but it has had no effect. It seems to be getting worse. Anyone have any ideas?

This can be a fungus. Cut the brown area away from the plant and even remove the mulch that was around the plant.
Dispose of this material.
Treat the Juniper with Neem Oil.
