Does Planting Fig Trees Near Cedar Affect Strength

Question From: S. Qin - ALABAMA
Q: Should my fig trees not plant beside the green fence of cedar trees? I observed that the fig trees branches on the fence side were much weaker than the n the other side.

A: Fig trees need at least 8 hours of sun a day so I would move the tree. Weak growth indicates it's not getting enough sun. The cedars may be out competing the fig for water. Good Luck and Happy Yardening
