They are turning brown and dying-it starts at the bottom and goes to the top--we lost one 4 years ago--on a real wet spring-another this spring-which was real wet--i have 4 more looking bad--the county agent sais it was a fungus--and we have been spraying every 2 weeks--ther are about 15 of them and it has took 11 years to be so big and beautiful and I hate to lose them--they really are the show case of our yard--the agent said on a real wet year the fungus will start up and then go away on a drought-but it seems more like a disease to me--11 years ago they were 20 dollars apiece at the nursery and when they went on sale for 5 dollars-I loaded up my pick up -even on the tail gate and saw my dh on the way home and he had a friend with him and he got a good joking because he had to go home and plant all of them--i put half of them on his truck --so there is a good memory with these bushes--thanks to all-Nancy

Nancy, do you know what bagworms are? Do you see any evidence of cacoon looking attachments in the lower portion of the cedars?
