Hi, these Cedars were installed as my only privacy screen in 2011. They have always looked healthy as they get plenty of water. They are planted next to a drainage ditch that gets lots of runoff. Now they are browning. Is this just spot browning or is this a bigger issue? I don’t know the variety to research.

    From this distance it’s hard to tell which type of cedar (eastern white cedar – Thuja occidentalis or eastern red cedar – Juniperus virginiana) and its reason of browning.
    Check out Walter’s site for Juniper Phomopsis tip blight.
    Copy & paste the other two links.
    You might want get in touch with Your local Agricultural Extension for further assistance. Best wishes!
