Cedar Hedge Turning Brown

(Question)

My Cedar hedge was planted mid-summer and now the leaves are turning brown.  I saw on your website that this may be normal in October. Is is possible that we planted the trees too deeply?  I saw on the website that tree trunks need to be exposed and not covered.

New trees always require lots of water.  Cedar trees are heavy drinkers.  I recommend watering them weekly or even more often until the frost.  I would remove any earth or mulch covering the base of the trees so they can breathe.  Please give us a call in the spring and let us know whether your trees survived.
