Dying Juniper

Asked July 19, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

Our Juniper and pine bush have died. We are not sure why or who to all. Soil probably needs to be tested. Photo attached. Thanks!

I did not see the picture, but since you have two different evergreens dieing in the area a test of soil would be good. Call your local office to see if you can purchase a PSU soil test kit 412-473-2540. You can see more from PSU Soil Test Lab:

You can also work with a master gardener with this question and show them the results of the soil test. Coordinator information:
