My beautiful Conifers/Cypress are browning/dying/drying out from the bottom up and from inside out. Any ideas what is causing this and what i can do to fix this?

    What are they? Conifers aren't all the same. Any part of a conifer that doesn't get light will go brown. The inside is always brown. If you trim off the green parts and expose the brown you won't get more green coming in most conifers. There are a few exceptions.

    Bottom branches of trees tend to die back as the top growth stops their light. The exceptions are the ones that are broader at the base and keep the light. Have you got a pic so we can see what's happening
