I had a client call me in to have a look at a weeping alaska cedar (Cham. nootkatensis pendula) regarding its ailing vigour. It is quite brown and is a recent transplant (this Spring) It was planted from field grown stock, rootballed to a 32" wire basket lined with burlap, planted with wire basket intact and burlap roled to ground level. Weekly use of transplanter (IBA and NPK - at label rates), I say yikes and they will not continue to use this product on this plant. I see borer evidence, a fair bit of it on the main trunk. small entry holes perhaps 1/8" with some sawdust and tunnelling is mostly shallow (I scraped the bark for a small area). No sign of adult or other stage at this point. It was planted too deep, although I feel this is the nursery's mistake as it was at least 4" of soil above the flare, in the root ball. Any comments or insight?
