We have Arborvitae that are planted in the SE corner of our backyard, they get filtered sun and also are partially covered by Fir tree limbs that hang over our fence. They were planted last year around August 2014. We have been told Arborvitae needs full sun, is this correct, do you have any suggestion as to what the problem might be. We want to replant but are not sure if this is the right location for them
