Leyland Cypress brown

Asked June 21, 2017, 3:14 PM EDT

I have a stand of Leyland Cypress & they all look stressed & are browning. Noticed this just this spring & is getting worse.they are about 10 years old one tree is completely brown. Sun to part shade. Seems as though a random branch is affected . We have not fertile days or treated the plant. My husband used round up for a few weeds. What can I do?

Please send us photos of the trees, around the base of the trees, and affected foliage so we can see what you may be dealing with.

There are several insects and diseases that can impact Leyland cypress, not to mention problems caused by improper planting, root damage, drought, and other abiotic problems.
