Recognition and control of several needle and twig blight pathogens which attack junipers.
Junipers are widely used throughout Nebraska in both ornamental landscape plantings and windbreaks. Eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana), Rocky Mountain juniper (J. scopulorum), and other common juniper species are subject to attack by several needle and twig blight pathogens. It is important to properly identify and separate the diseases involved, as each may require a different procedure for effective control.
