Q.Arborvitae die off

Zone 53083 | Anonymous added on September 9, 2020 | Answered

Two years ago a small patch of dead space appeared on one of our arborvitaes on the west side of the house. It seemed to have stopped til this spring when it suddenly spread to the top of the tree. What is causing this? It recently has appeared on the back side of another about 7 feet away.
