    I need some advice regarding the brown needles on my Hinoki. It seems to wax an wane but recently has become quite extensive.
    I can't seem to find any information on the problem or what to do about it.
    Any advice would be appreciated
    They are planted south facing next to the garage. I've fertilized them and it seems to make little difference.
    Thanks
    Jane

    If there is an excessive amount of browning of foliage, especially on the exterior branches it would be a pathogenic disease problem like root rot. Fertilizing would not be relevant to this problem, in future do not fertilize without having your soil analyzed. Check soil near base of plant for excessive dampness.

    Thanks so much, that explains a lot. There is an inground sprinkler system in place which will have to be checked.
    Thanks again
