A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories 382
Tip blight of juniper is a fungal disease that causes tip dieback and twig cankers, which result in a weakened and disfigured plant. If infection is very severe, the disease can kill the plant. Secondary pests can also move in after the plant is stressed and contribute to its demise. It affects mainly juniper but may also be found on cedar, cypress, arborvitae, fir, larch, yew, and some other conifers.
