Juniperus - Please Help

Post  rolandp on Fri Jul 02, 2010 5:50 pm

Dear Bonsai Friends.

It seams that I have a problem one of my juniperus. On the top of the branches the shoots are geting brown. Most evidently on one branche (first picture), a similar situation just a little less intense is visible on all other branches (second picture). The tree has been transplanted last autum, the soil is very airy and porous, the container is even too big, fertilized with Plante ORGANIK (periodically, about every three weeks), watered regularly (not too intense) and it is on a sunny position. When I found out that the shoots started to dry I stoped fertilizaing.






If anyone has any similar experience or knows what could be the reason for the problem, please advice or share any kind of information.

Regards, Roland

Are there any agricultural fields nearby. Could you be having some pesticide (herbicide) drift affecting your tree? Or maybe from a neighbor's lawn?

Have you used any pesticides lately?

What is your soil like, as far as drainage goes. Many times when junipers behave this way its related to watering habits. If you have slow drainage or soil that holds water you could be overwatering.

Have you looked for any bugs? Try running your fingers through the foliage over a sheet of paper to see what you get. Yellowing foliage could also indicate a mite or scale problem.

I would bet its one of those two things.
