Is my tree going to die?

Asked July 6, 2018, 1:02 PM EDT

I have a huge cedar tree in my yard and the top is starting to die brown. The trees behind my neighbour's yard are dead you can see in pic. Seemed to happen fast. How can I save my tree which is in my yard. I live in Surrey BC

Outside United States cedar rust

Thank you for contacting us. There are a number of possibilities to explain the die-back on your tree. The fact that your neighbor's trees are adjacent and similarly affected indicates there may be a root problem or disease. Due to the size of your tree, I suggest you consult with a certified arborist in your area who will be more familiar with diseases on your particular species.

I'm sorry I cannot provide more assistance, but I am in Ontario where our weather, species and diseases are different.
