Boxwoods

Asked May 28, 2020, 9:11 PM EDT

I live in Mount Clemens and notice my boxwoods looking bad when looked up they resemble what is called Boxwood blight.

Has this infected a Macomb county ?

Macomb County Michigan

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern. I cannot find any data about positive confirmations of Boxwood blight in your county. Thankfully there are a few other issues that look similar so I would love for you to review these resources. If you feel that you have Boxwood Blight, please send a sample to the lab for confirmation, here is that link https://www.canr.msu.edu/pestid/
