PHYTOPHTHORA CITRICOLA . Damage to yew hedges caused by this fungus killing the roots and stem bases , exacerbated apparently by excessively heavy watering . Healthy foliage contrasting with the yellowish , short needles and short current shoots of a badly affected plant . General view shows the extent and severity of damage and the hose pipe left unattended for hours to saturate the ground . Location: Unknown .
