Cryptomeria Japonic A'Yoshino Cedar tree

Dear Anne, We got back to our home in Hendersonville, NC after being away for four months. We found the subject tree with many dead brown limbs. The tree was planted about three years ago and is about 10t. high. Our landscaping company has trimmed off a number of the limbs. Is there anything we can do? Thanks, Suzanne

Anne's response:

I think you can chalk this one up to heat and drought. Hopefully with winter rains the tree will make some recovery although you should not expect to see new limbs to replace those that were cut off. An application of fertilizer in late February or early March should help new growth.
