Tree with brown spots after winter.

Asked July 23, 2018, 11:53 AM EDT

I am wondering why I have these brown spots (after winter). I am wondering whether to cut off the branches OR brush off the needles or DO nothing! I live in Burnsville. Thank you much!

It's OK to remove the dead stems. This will improve the plant's appearance and will not affect its health.
