#2479 Spreading/Andorra juniper center dying - options?

Posted by Rudy on 16 April 2017 - 03:23 PM

I have an Andorra juniper about 20 years or more old.  It occupies a spot near the curb where I can't grow grass.  It's huge now, but the middle is dying out.  My initial thought was to remove it and replace, but then I realized that lots of the branches have developed roots.  How about if I cut off some of these younger branches, with roots, and try to replant them after getting rid of the old dead center?  Any chance of success or just a waste of time?



Never mind - decided to yank them.

More ambitious than me.  I did:
cleaned leaves out of gutters.
hoses put away.
water turned off at outside faucets.
Final (of 3) fertilizations of lawn.
Last mowing.
Removed mower blade to be sharpened.
Changed oil in mower.
Leaves gone from lawn.
Too early to do anything to roses.
Still need to clean/sharpen/oil tools.
