Red cedar death update?
Greetings! We live on Bannister (flows into Bronson) Creek west of Portland and we have 30-50 year old Red Cedar trees that are dying at the edge of the creek. There are small areas on the trunk exuding clear pitch. Top turning brown but almost seems that the stress causing lowermost limbs to grow with vigor. The pitch spots seem to suggest borers. Is there a known cause of Red Cedar in the area dying? And if so is there anything we can do? Thank you for your time, Catherine Glass Stormsrneat@gmail.com
