Weeping Larch Needles Turning Brown And Bark On Trunk Is Splitting Open

Question From: Bellevue, Wisconsin, United States
Q: I have a weeping larch that has browning needles. Thinking it is a fungus, I started spraying with Neem (yesterday). Also, the bark on the main trunk is splitting open. Very concerned! What's up? Hope you can help!!!!!

A: I am not a tree professional. If it were my tree I would get an onsite inspection from a certified arborist. To find one in your area go to www.tcia.org and enter your zip code. Best of Luck Nancy
