My low growing yews [Japanese, I think] have dead spots due to the extreme heat these past few weeks. Can this be trimmed out? Thanks.

Early to mid-spring is the recommended time for pruning yew shrubs, though you could do some light trimming only in the fall. However, it should be ok to lightly trim out the damaged foliage now.
