The foliage on my trees has turned brown. What can I do to restore the lovely blue foliage?

Hi, S,
Has the entire tree(s) turned brown? Is there any green underneath/below the brown? Are your trees all planted in the same place? Planted at the same time? How long ago were they planted? It is important to be careful when pruning most conifers - they usually don't regenerate from old, bare wood. If you see signs of life under the brown, you can lightly shear back the dead. It is important, however, to try to determine why they turned brown to avoid it happening again.

Hi Kathy thanks for your message. The 4 trees were planted 3 years ago in the same area when my garden was landscaped. They started to go brown during a very dry spell a couple of years ago but despite lots of watering since then they still have a lot of brown foliage. There is some green foliage underneath the brown on all of them so I'll try your suggestion of lightly trimming it off.
Thanks and regards
S
