Recently popular question and answer from our Q&A Archive: Italian Cypress Dying
"Two of my nine Italian Cypress trees---all mature and in a row spaced about 2 feet from each other---have died about 9 months apart, and others also show signs of it. These trees have been at full height for at least 10 years, and we have made no changes in watering in that time. The branches all seem to begin turning brown and drying up at the same time all along the tree, starting with the outside tips, and the process is relatively fast, over about 4 to 6 months. There are a few lesions in the bark of the lower trunk, and some sap oozing, but this does not seem to be the cause. No insects (e.g., borer beetles) can be seen. Could be a fungus, but which? Please let me know the various possible causes (either insect or disease), and how to treat each one." - Click to read the answer
