Q.What is happening to these conifers?

These conifers are around 15-20 years old, but some look like they’re dying . Any ideas what’s happening?

This appears to be a fungal infection. This can happen when the season is overly wet, or from over irrigation.

You will likely have to remove the trees heavily affected, as they will never fully recover. I would treat the area with a fungicide as well, before planting. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
