Conifer in trouble?

Asked September 26, 2020, 4:58 PM EDT

The images will show a 35 to 40 year old conifer that may be exhibiting a disease issue. If it is possible to diagnose from the images, can you suggest a treatment? Thanks

Overall your spruce looks very healthy. We suspect it is a Norway spruce, which do well here.

We do not see a disease or pest issue. Prune off the dead branch at its base. Keep an eye out for any other changes in the tree. If you see anything suspicious, send us a close focused photo.
