    I can't see a dying conifer. Do you mean the tree in the middle?
    The photo isn't very clear I'm afraid, but it looks like a maple of some kind. They're deciduous, so don't retain foliage over winter  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • i will take a better pic for you. :)
  • its a conifer three which as been shaped like a tree
  • The tree in the middle isn't a conifer - the trees to the left and right look like conifers of some type but not the other one.
    Unsure what your actual query is ?  It would appear to be a deciduous tree which is behaving normally for this time of year.
    Your pics aren't really very clear to positively ID it.
  • you could be right....  thanks. for your help

    Maybe a photo of an individual leaf ... just to confirm?

    I think that's a Cupressus of some sort ... not a very happy one ... I think you're right, it may well be stressed ... possibly from drought ... they need a great deal of water and with a tree either side it may well have struggled.  Unfortunately once patches have gone brown they won't turn green again ... I think I'd remove it and lessen the demand for moisture in that area so that the other two trees don't suffer the same fate.   
    With generous watering in the spring and summer the other two may well spread out and fill the gap.

  • Sorry - I think I've lost the plot.  Hope you manage to get an answer :)
