Question From: D. Hokkanen - Winchester, Virginia, United States
Q: I have a healthy dawn redwood, but a friend has one which has a problem with hers that I can't find described. The branches grow in a rather curvy manner and the bark isn't smooth like mine. It is dark and very cracked. Do you have any suggestions of what the problem is and, if so, do you have any treatment for it?
Debbie, If it were my tree I would get an onsite inspection from a trained arborist. To find one in your friends area go to www.tcia.org and enter her zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
