Spruce Dead on Top

Asked April 14, 2018, 7:05 PM EDT

Hello - this tree was planted late 2016, we noticed last year that the top began going brown. There do appear to be holes in the trunk. This is planted right next to another spruce. What do you think it is? Can we save the tree? Can it ever grow upwards? Should we treat the tree next to it? It appears healthy. We are about 6,300 ft Thanks! Julie
