Q: will all the brown fall off and be replaced by green. Does that happen in the fall and winter and then come back green or do I cut off the brown. They are such an eyesore. I have been watering them more for 2 months and still rust brown.
If they have lost most of their needles or they have turned brown, they are probably dying. Take photos to the place you purchased them for advice. As I said before, I do not have a crystal ball. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
