Why Do Inside Arborvitae Needles Turn Brown

Question From: D. Gaertner - Saginaw, Michigan, United States
Q: Why have our Arborvitae inside needles turned brown over the winter?

A: Winter burn caused the death of the needles. Arbs can be pruned but you must leave some green on the branches or there will be no regrowth. If they are badly damaged consider replacement. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
