Evergreens turning brown

Asked April 29, 2016, 4:37 PM EDT

Many of our evergreens have branches that are brown. Have had a few die here and there over the years but this year its quite wide spread. Is this a disease or insect damage? Is there anything you can tell me about possible causes and remedies? Thanks. Photo attached.

In general junipers can brown out due to lack of sunlight, winter damage, etc. We cannot say for sure. At this point we recommend that you prune the dead branches during dry weather. Monitor the plant during this growing season and if you notice additional symptoms send us photos.
