So for the past 2 months I've been watching my juniper slowly get duller and twigs beginning to go brown. I've looked at suspicious parts under a magnifying glass and I see what would look like phomopsis. The parts of the twigs that are newly dying are going brown, while closer to the interior they are ash gray in color and even have the black spots that are the fruiting spores. I can assume as with any form of blight you would need to remove the infected areas and dispose of them (ie landfill) I'm worried that it's too late for this 13 year old juniper now as most areas of the tree are starting to go brown. ..Does anyone have any experience with this, if i can I care a great deal for this tree but I'm beginning to feel it's a lost cause.
