I acquired this tree over the winter. It was not in very good shape. It had lots of very thin branches and thin trunk for its age (I was told 25 years old). I pruned back a bunch of branches around February just to see what was really going on at the trunk.
A few weeks ago I repotted as it was pretty root-bound and i wanted to start growing the trunk and branches to gain thickness.
Over the past few days the needles have started to brown at the tips. The foliage was never strong to begin with. Needles were very weak, not like any JWP I had ever seen.
I am 99% confident this tree is over watered due to the larger pot I put it in which is causing the browning tips and the extreme amount of water we have been getting in the North East (Long Island, NY).
What can I do to save it at this point. Is it too late to repot again with a new 1:1:1 substrate? I have begun to take the tree inside when there is rain in the forecast and the weather is beginning to warm up. It is showing good new candle growth but I am still worried for its health. Any advise is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
