junipers tips browning

Asked March 22, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

My boss said he has seen many junipers around town that the tips in about 4" are all turning brown, including his. Have you had anyone else turn this in? Is this just a winter problem caused from the very cold we had or is there some disease that might be hitting them?
