For the past month or so, I've noticed that our big Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) has been turning brown. I know that it usually does this but I don't recall seeing it to this extent. The entire backside of the tree looks completely brown and the opposite side is slowly turning brown also. Is this normal???
I can see new growth sprouting out from some of the branches. I hope this is a good sign that nothing is wrong.
If any tree experts can weigh in on this, I'd appreciate it!
