Cypress Trees Yellowing-Browning Problem

Asked October 16, 2019, 11:57 AM EDT

How can the cypress trees be restored to health? The yellow-orange-rust brown leaves are spreading throughout the trees and this seems to be happening at a rather rapid pace.

Based on your photos we think this looks like normal fall color and leaf drop brought on by the drought. No control is necessary. Water the trees deeply up until the ground freezes if we do not receive rain.
