Arborvitae turning color

Asked June 19, 2019, 1:25 PM EDT

Do you have any suggestions on what is causing my arborvitae to turn yellow? It started in one area and is spreading. I sure do not want to loose this hedge!

Hello:

It's not completely clear from the photo, but it looks like random parts of the hedge are not producing new growth, other parts are growing well. I'm not sure what might cause that, though it is possibly a spider mite problem. I think I would have to see the hedge in person to determine the cause. can you please contact me directly at the email address below? Thank You!
