Management The best course of action for management of any needle and shoot blight pathogen is to prune and discard as many infected plant parts as much as possible. If extended periods of wet weather persist, spray every 10 to 14 days as long as young, susceptible needles are present. Because arborvitae have dense canopies, especially those that are sheared, ideal conditions exist for development of the pathogen.
