salvaging a brown brandon cedar
Hi. I just bought a new house last year, and transplanted a brandon almost 6 feet tall. I perhaps damaged the roots, didn't water enough in the fall, and let it get dessicated in the long transition from winter to spring... All of the tree other than the bottom foot has browned tight to the tips. At the bottom it's still green and soft. Is there hope of salvaging this tree so that it eventually is attractive again? If so, should I cut the brown parts all off? Or is it best to give it a quick death? Thanks for your input; this is my first posting and I'm excited to learn from the great collective wisdom out there.
