You can prune out the browning areas. I'm not sure whether its due to insect infestations or a problem with the roots. Try pruning or shearing your arborvitaes to remove the brown areas. With any luck this will also remove the insect pests or fungal spores if any are present. Best wishes with your arborvitaes!
