Can this Leyland Cypress be saved? Turning brown...

BostonTim2004May 28, 2011

Good afternoon. I planted a three-foot Leyland Cypress a couple of years ago. Last year, it grew a couple feet. This year, after a particularly heavy and nasty Boston winter, the Leyland (and a few other Leylands that I've planted through the years) have started turning brown. Browning is evident at the tips of certain branches and on interior branches as well. I notice that the single leader branch is browned at the tip as well. Browning is deep and renders the branches "crispy". I've attached a picture and would appreciate any insight anyone might be willing to share. I just want to know if the trees are toast or if they might bounce back in time. Thanks very much in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The pic's fallen off, but it sounds like it's dead. Boston is decidedly marginal for them, it doesn't surprise me that a bad winter would kill them there.
