dead ornamental cherry trees

Asked May 1, 2015, 10:29 AM EDT

I am seeing a lot of dead ornamental trees in our Meridian Idaho neighborhood this spring. Particularly Japanese Cherry. Do you have any ideas why this may have happened? We had a mild winter and dry spring.

Sorry, without knowing more of the local conditions and history, it is hard to say what the cause might be. I would suggest you contact your local county extension office. They might have a better feel for what local conditions may be causing the death of these trees.
