Emerald Cedars


We have emerald cedars planted along a drive way of a condo building. The space is about 2 ft deep and 20 ft long. The drive way is heavily used and is salted in winter. All the cedars along the driveway are now brown. What is causing them to die? Are they appropriate for a driveway?


Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners with your question about Emerald Cedars¬†Thuja occidentalis ‘Smaragd’. We receive many questions about cedar problems and checking our archives will provide much information. The two following articles will offer some suggestions. We wish you well in resolving the problem.
