I have 4 blue spruce I started 25 years ago from 1 gallon pots.They're probably 35 ft. tall now and 1 of them is starting to loose a small section 4 to 5 foot from the bottom. What to do?

Generally when a tree begins to die from the bottom up it indicates a root rot. You can inspect the affected branches for signs of insects or diseases, but I suspect the problem is really a root problem. Wish I had something more encouraging to share.
