I had two bald cypress trees die last summer from what appeared to be root rot. One had just bee restyled, the other repotted. Both died with sudden branch loss that progressed down the trunk. no help from antifungals.
I am currently growing a test BC that is about 5 years old and was repotted this spring in akadama/shale/pine bark mix. Did not get a big flush of growth this spring, some growth at the apex. It did not respond well to defoliation with only moderate regrowth, mostly at the apex.
Is this typical for Dallas or am I missing something? Thanks
