Q.Why Is My Cedar Pine Drooping?

Zone 5b | SingleGardenGuy added on August 6, 2021 | Answered

I have a 2 year old Cedar Pine tree that was transplanted from a small rocky area to a pot to be used as a bonsai. During the summer, the center top became discolored, pale brownish, and the branches and needles began drooping. The tree has also become a pale green versus the dark vibrant green it was upon transplanting. I don’t know what is wrong or how to return it to health. I also transplanted 2 smaller/younger trees from the same area to pots and they haven’t developed this problem. Any ideas, suggestions and/or advice, please? note: I tried adding pics but the system kept failing the upload.

It sounds like the tree was too mature to move, or too many roots were damaged in the process of moving. The only way to save it is to ensure that it receives perfect care, if the roots aren't too damaged.

Unfortunately, since the photos wouldn't upload, I cannot see whether this was a cedar or a pine. I will include articles for both.
