I have noticed densiform yews seem to be dying all over town. Is there something out there this year causing this?

According to Kansas State University cooperative extension, "The pinewood nematode population explodes during hot Kansas summers, severely reducing the yew's resin and moisture flow. This reduced flow dries and then kills the needles and soon the yew itself. The symptoms appear well after the the damage is done."
