    Adapted from Please help me diagnose deodore cedar tree problem. - Ask an Expert "The blight is likely to be a needle blight fungus (of the genus Sirococcus or Kabatina). These kinds of needle or leaf blight fungi tend to be worse with a long wet spring season. The spores are dispersed by splashing water at the same time that new growth emerges on the cedars. New growth and twigs near the tip are most affected and trees usually recover later in the summer."

    For more information on the blight and possible treatments, see the article in the PNW Plant Disease Handbook at

    Deodar Cedar Cedrus deodara. Looks like a fungal disease of some sort; not sure which.

    not sure which

    Question was answered in preceding post. After heavy snowfall in Feb. in this region many weeping blue Atlas cedar in particular are heavily affected.
