Uh-oh. It sounds like a fungal infection started, and when it wasn't controlled, had spread!

I'm afraid that controlling the issue now will be near impossible. It can be treated, usually, if it is caught early, but once it spreads across species- It is no good!

You will likely be cutting them down soon. Just be sure not to replant any conifers in the area anytime soon.

For infections that become widespread, it is best to contact your local extension service. They will be able to help you stop the spread to other properties. This link will help you to find the closest one to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search
