Arborvitae Tree Branches And Foliage Are Starting To Thin Out

Question From: D. Striegel - La Crosse, Wisconsin, United States
Q: I have a 40 ft arborvitae tree and the branches and foliage from the top to bottom are starting to thin out considerably is this tree lacking something? We have had plenty of rain.

A: Dave, it is impossible for me to advise you on this one. The conditions in every yard are different. A trained tree doctor is your best bet. I recommend you have an onsite inspection from a certified arborist from your area.
