    It's normal for it to shed some old dead foliage every year - whether yours is OK, or dropping too much, can't tell without some photos.

    Again, Cedrus deodara also sheds old needles (when they're a couple of years old), so normal unless it is looking particularly bare.

    PS welcome to the forums!
