We have 30 forsythia, all about 4 years old. About six are showing signs of drying and dead leaves. The plants are dying. The soil is moist and all other plants are doing fine. What do you suggest?

On plant Forsythia



What part of the country are you in, Wnickell? Have there been changes in the local environment this year, such as digging around the roots, or the removal of a shade tree? Are they on the property line, and is it possible that your neighbor did something with digging or weed killer? Has there been a change of soil grade in the past few years?
When I see wilting or brown leaves on a plant in moist soil, the first thing that I think of is root damage.
