Newly planted spruce Dying and Growing What?
My newly planted blue spruce has newgrowth but yet is getting more and more brown needles. What should I do?
Adams County Colorado spruce trees
Usually as long as the needles that are turning brown are on the interior of the tree I don't worry. As long as the new growth is green the tree should be okay. All conifers lose old needles and this may just be that. Are you dry where you are - some parts of the state are way below normal on rainfall. If you are dry you could water it on a regular basis but don't over water as spruce don't like lots of water.
