What can I do about a burnt conifer?
Cheshire, United Kingdom
Early Summer during a very rare warm and dry spell a spark from a nearby buidlers fire set off all the dead & dry leaf from our conifer. This set alight immediately and suffered severe damage.
What was left of the green is still green, it is not getting any worse nt it looks a disgrace.
Can anything be done to help? Is the brown foliage a sign that the branch is dead and no new growth will emerge. Can it be trimmed to promote new branches?
I'm even tempted to get some of that green lawn spray paint as a temporary fix but I can't find that in the UK.
Sorry the picture isin the dark but it's easy enough to see the damage.
P.S Cheshire, UK
