This juniper was looking pretty good already in 2007. But then every spring it lost one half to two thirds of the foliage due to a disastrous fungus. I tried with all sorts of fungicides but the foliage still died. Last year, when I was ill nobody sprayed and it was even worse and I had almost given up the tree. This year I poured coper fungicide every two weeks from end of march to middle of may all over the tree. This worked and it lost almost no foliage at all this year. Now it made sense to style it again. It looks to me like the tree is back on track again.
