Deodar Cedars

Postby llhabh » Mon Jul 24, 2017 4:18 pm

I have a large group (24) of Deodar Cedars that are 40' to 50' high. They are trimmed to app. 12'. During the past several years, I have noticed more and more of the limbs dying. I recently had the soil tested by the Virginia Tech lab and the ph was found to be 5.1. I understand that Deodars grow best with a soil ph of 7.0 and higher. VA Tech is recommending that I apply 22 lbs/100 sq ft of agricultural lime. The Deodars cover an area of app. 60' X 375'. This means I will need to apply 5,000 lbs of lime. Before I go to the effort and expense, does anyone feel the lime will help or know of anyone who could provide advice on the subject? The problem is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Thanks for any help.
