Any thoughts on what happened to this English Laurel Hedge?
I examined some more of the large dead area, and found a few new leaves emerging lower in the shrub. Most of the limbs and branches are completely dead, as I scraped some of the bark and found no green. Further into the shrub, I could find a few branches that still had some green color when I scraped the bark with my nail.
Has anyone ever seen something like this before? Any thoughts on if this could happen in any way other than a person maybe walking along spraying something, either on purpose or on accident? I have seen a shrub have major dieback from too much exhaust blowing into it if a machine is left running too close to it. But obviously, this extends along her entire hedge. One photo shows the inside/house view of the hedge, opposite from the large dead spot as seen on the street side.
Thanks for any ideas or thoughts.
