Default Conifer disease

Hi all. I'm a relatively inexperienced gardener, so this might be common
knowledge, to all but me!...



What's the disease that seems to be damaging conifers throughout the UK?
Large sections of foliage dying off, looking very dry & dead. Does anyone
know what this is, & what can be done about it?



Is this one of those diseases caused when an exotic species is imported,
bringing with it a virus, or fungus, etc that is benign to that species, but
that other plants present here have no immunity to?



Any info/help gratefully received.



TIA, JeffK

Hi Chad.

No. what i've seen around the country, & got on my own conifers, (i've seen
it on various types of conifer) is foliage that's gone brown & very dry. It
crumbles when rubbed between the fingers. It's as if the plants are dying
from a lack of water. (If it is a virus, that could be interfering with the
plants water uptake mechanisms.......)

.... maybe it's lack of water.

Hi Jeff,

It could, of course, be drought.

Have a google on Phytophthera - a disease of many plants, and conifers in
particular.

Don't think it's drought as i water my garden regularly & they're also well
sheltered from the wind.

I think I remember someone saying something to me about a disease effecting
conifers, but i may be remembering wrong.

It doesn't look like Phytophthera to me, either

Could it be due to cypress aphid damage?
See RHS page: http://tinyurl.co.uk/3y8u

There's several conifer hedges around my way affected like this. Trouble is
once the brown patches are extensive there's not a lot you can do, because
the foliage won't usually regenerate from older wood if you cut it the dead
parts back.

Conifers are not designed to withstand the kind of drought conditions we
have experienced in recent years
Plus they dont like too much water either and they all die from base up plus
light deprivation causes them to go brown too ........hence why so many
hedges only have foliage higher up if they are planted against a fence or
wall

The message
from "nambucca" contains these words:

You may have, but lots of the UK hasn't had any drought at all. Do we
know where the OP is?

Janet.
