Lawson cypress (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) in decline at Exwick Cemetery (Dec 2019)
Information: A pair of variegated type of Lawson cypress at the Exwick Cemetery of which one is in decline. The cause of the decline (dead leaves and open crown) is likely to be due to water-logging of the roots due to a blocked drain. I have made the Council and local Exwick councillors aware who will notify the Cemetery manager. If the drain is unblocked and measures taken to reduce to the run off from the slope - the tree's health should improve.
