Needles Falling Off Blue Spruce


Rebecca Vidal added on January 31, 2016 | Answered

I live in St. Louis, MO. I have a 3-year-old spruce that has thrived since I planted it but just noticed that it looks sick. All of the needles are falling off, coming from the inside of the branch and traveling out.
