Hi everyone,
I am here to seek advice regarding a thuja emerald 'samargd' that was transplanted in november in canada. According to the nursery it was the best time to transplant thujas since they are protected from extreme heat. Since march (5 months after transplanting) I noticed paling and I was watering constantly. It is not helping. Today I had to dig it out to see if the roota are tangled or rotten but they aren't. Ill include pictures.

Welcome to the forum :)

I'm afraid it's not of this world anymore, it's departed this realm. That is an ex thuja :(

Thanks for the replies. Will replace it with smaller thuja and hopefully this time holds.

You are planting the plant too close to the building to have healthy growth. If plant another one there in the same place it will die too. Pull it back away from the building so it can get Sun on both sides of the plant. Your plant is only getting about 50 % or less even 35 % lighting in that area.

There was a "junipurus whichitas blue" in this place before it dies and we had to remove it. It is true that half of the thuja seems greener than the other half maybe because of sun exposure. Thanks for taking the time to point this out. I will definitely consider another type of shrub to replace
