Hi, I hope this is the right place to post this! We have a cabin right beside a lake and we have 3 wild cedar trees in front of the cabin. The last few years they have started to get straggly. We have done some renos to the cabin and property including putting on gutters, improving the drainage (the lot was very wet before) and putting paving bricks in front of the cabin. At this time of year the lake is usually very high so the roots on the water side get well soaked. I have wondered why the trees have fewer branches than before and the last few years I have watered them with a soaker hose, but probably not as much as I could have. Could the cement patio cause problems? And is watering a good idea? How about fertilizer? We really love these trees and don´t want to lose them. Thanks for any advice you can give me!
