Newly Planted Arborvitae
Hi there, I had several 7' arborvitae planted in February. They were in burlap balls and were planted about 2.5 feet apart. I've been watering (when it's not raining often) about 2-3 times a week with a soaker hose for half and hour. But I have random branches that are turning brown. They keep popping up in more numbers. I don't see any pests and tested the soil and it's on the acidic side. What can I do to make sure I'm not losing them? Thanks Jennifer

That is really good to know about the burlap. I wasn't sure about that. And thank you for confirming the watering schedule. I'm always worried about over-watering, but it sounds like I need to pick up the pace. I really appreciate your advise, this extension offering is amazing!! Again, I appreciate the help and hope you're having a good summer so far.
