Emerald Green Arborvitae rusting
Does anybody have any advice for me for my newly transplanted arborvitaes that are rusting? Transplanted 15 of them about 4-5 weeks ago. They have been watered about 2x a week on average, as needed. They looked great until a few days ago as half of them have been getting rusty on the inside. Most of them being a very deep rusty color (not brown, black, or yellow). I heard this may happen in the fall and is normal for the leaves to "drop" but I can't help but worry. I'm a young homeowner with very little gardening experience so any advice would be helpful, thanks.
