|Hi, i've got a row of small Yews that I planted a few years ago. I'm in zone 7 and they are in full done. Unfortutantely, they've been slowly dying over the past few years and i cant figure out why. They are watered well, have decent soil and I dont see any kind of disease. Thanks.

|I'm not sure what might be bothering your yews. Have you checked for spider mites? Their feeding can cause the foliage to look yellow/green and then die. Check the inner parts of the branches for tell-tale webbing. You can discourage spidermites by periodically hosing off the plants, directing the stream of water towards the inner branches and foliage. Good luck with your Yews.
