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.
