Cedar Trees Dying

A gentleman has 2 rows of 4 cedar trees, 2 in one row next to each other have died, slowly over 2 years. Now more are turning brown from the top, down. The trees are given a grass fertilzer, once a year and flood irrigated with well water twice a week. The trees are not in the lawn and nothing has been sprayed around the trees. No weed and feed used on the lawn. The trees are 8-9 years old, transplanted 4 years ago and up until 2 years ago, doing fine.
