Fir trees browning

I have two small fir trees that are showing signs of browning as per photo. Anyone got any suggestions as to how to solve the problem.?? I think they have been quite well watered over the winter/spring due to the amount of rain we have had. Advice appreciated.thanks in advance

    I think that looks as if it's been too dry at some stage ... plants against a fence or wall, whether in the ground or in containers, can be in what is called a 'rain shadow' which is actually an area which gets little rain because of the height of the wall fence and the predominant  direction of the rainfall.

  • Is it recoverable with some watering then???

    Afraid not.
    Brown conifer leaves are dead and there will not be any regrowth.
