Blue Point Juniper Turning Yellow

Postby Canadian Ent » Apr 22, 2013 4:34 pm

have a blue point juniper that has been trimmed into a spiral, and I really like it.

I planted it around this time last year.

Around mid-season last year, a portion of it near the bottom turned brown; not brown all the way around, but a big line of brown. It didn't spread and I was hoping the area might come back this year.

In the last week the whole plant has turned yellow. The inside needles are still green, but the whole outside is yellow.

I don't think it can be overwatering - I haven't watered it once this year.

Here are some pictures:

Any thoughts?

Looks like the roots did not establish themselves and the tree has "browned off".....sorry to say that the juniper is dying and will probably get worse and die.....
