    I have a customer that has a spirally trimmed spruce that is browning in spots. We've tried extra watering, fertilizing, etc. Anybody have any ideas as to what's going on and how to treat?

    Do a soil test first. That way you wil know what's going on with that spruce.

    Probably spider mites.They love those spruce topiarys.
