Italian cypress

Asked September 27, 2016, 12:34 PM EDT

I have trees that have died one branch at a time. My research leads me to believe it to be a fungus. How do I treat this condition, I have other trees one of which is starting to become involved?

Not sure if you are referring to canker fungus or root rot fungus. You may want to contact your County Cooperative Extension Office to find out if they can provide you with a definitive diagnosis and appropriate treatment from samples of the affected areas you provide. Here are some information sources that present options for disease management.
