Green Giant Thuja Turning Brown - Early Winter - December 2022
On a recent afternoon, I went to have a look at some of the garden to see how it was navigating this first part of Winter. We've had plenty of hard frosts, cold nights and even a little snow. Most everything has gone dormant, so I was mostly (on this trip) focused on having a look at the evergreens. I went to the back of the garden to see how the three Green Giant Thujas that I planted this Spring were doing and noticed that one of them is doing...not so well. See below for the photo of this tree (or shrub??) turning light brown:
This one is the middle of the tree in the back - on the northside. It was planted in late April. I'm not calling this thing dead (just yet), but it appears that will be the case come Spring.
