Can you identify the problem we are having with this evergreen. Was planted about 4 years ago as a 6-7ft tree. Thank you, Mary

We aren't able to assess the tree's health by viewing the photos. We do see what appears to be a substantial amount of new growth on most of the branches and a rapidly growing leader, but branch growth on the tree as a whole appears to be uneven. A few twigs are dead and some spruce galls may be present.

In any case, we advise asking a forester or certified arborist to assess the tree's health onsite and recommend a course of action.
