Crytomeria help

lkbum_gwJuly 26, 2013

I have several young (planted about a year. 6' tall) cryptomerias. A couple of them have branches that have turned rediwh brown (needles and branch) or needles that are turning brown. It has been recorded setting wet this year, rain almost every day to a degree and an absolute flood (1 to 2 inches) about once a week. From what I've found, could be blight (are their variations in blight?) or mites.
Can these be treated at the same time?
Brown branches are still soft and flexible, should they be removed?
The trees are about 8' apart, should all be treated as a preventative measure?
Blight cures are for "copper" fungicides... Any brand stand out?
As you can tell I don't have muc experience in this area and greatly appreciate any help
