Leyland Cypress Issues…. Help?

Zone Conroe, TX | RWConroe added on January 16, 2019 | Answered

So these 4 Leyland Cypress were planted as a visual barrier shield from the 2 story house behind us. They were about 5-6ft tall when planted6 years or so ago. What ever is happening to them was initially occurring only where they came close to each other. It now seems to be moving around to the front. They were thriving trees this has begun within the last 18mo. Not sure what to do....? Any help would be greatly appreciated. THX RW

Unfortunately Leland Cypress can fall prey to a few diseases.
It may take some investigation to determine what is causing the browning of your shrubs and even then it may not be possible to save them.
