Juniper Bushes Turned Brown And Are Dying

Question From: CALIFORNIA
Q: My juniper bushes have turned brown and are dying. I took a sample to a nursery and they said it was lack of water. Months later I took another sample to a different nursery and was told it was probable a boer (not sure if that is spelled correctly). It seems to be emanating from the root up. Any suggestions? Whatever it is has turned the leaves a rust color before killing them. THANK YOU

A: I recommend you call a certified arborist, a trained tree doctor. It may be all those things or none of them and they need a professional to access them. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
