How to Manage Pests

Pests in Gardens and Landscapes

Cryptomeria blight—Pestalotiopsis funerea

Blight causes leaves on cryptomeria to turn yellow, then brown, beginning at the tip. The lower, older foliage is most affected. Blight is caused by a fungus that affects stressed and weakened plants.


Provide good growing conditions and appropriate cultural care.
