Notice that the tree in the top photo is partially shaded. The trees in the second photo are on the east side of the fence...morning sun, partial afternoon shade. Still toast.
Putting gravel around the base of those by the fence wasn't the brightest thing to do
Would you like your arbivitae "sunny side up" or "over easy"
