Boxwood dieback is a relatively new disease that is taking over the boxwoods in our area. It is a fungal disease that can spread and infect other boxwoods around it. Unfortunately, there is no “cure” as of yet. To stop the disease from spreading, the LSU Ag Center recommends that the plant, along with its roots, must be removed. You can try to trim out the infected area, but depending on the size, the box wood may never return to the shape you had before. If you think your boxwoods may be suffering from boxwood dieback, let us know and we will be happy to help!
