Rocky Mountain Juniper #4

My Rocky Mountain Junipers were much further already. Then, three years ago in spring they got a fungus which killed more than 50 % of the foliage. Last year again. I learned to apply a strong dose of copper. It helped somehow. This year again they lost some foliage. Now they seem to settle. I will have to restyle them again at the end of summer. All fine foliage needs to get wired.

Hello, Do you know or have a qualified guess on the funghus you're dealing with? Could it be Juniper Tip Blight which seems to be a big problem throughout many parts of Europe? //K

Could well be. Copper would be the right thing with more or less all sorts of fungi anyway.

Why you do not use a systemic fungicide like previcur?

Because copper works much better.
