I have a few cedars and some have turned brown. This seems to have happened all of a sudden. What I find odd is that one segment of the tree is fine but an entire segment is dried out from bottom to top. Will they come back or are they a lost cause?

Just happened, so not winter burn. I know they're subject to all sorts of things, borers, various fungal diseases, etc. As well as environmental stress from heat and wind. Call your local extension agent or government arborist and ask if there's a particular thing going on this year.

I know the dead part won't grow back. You can cut it away and see what the tree looks like. It won't regain its former shape. But if the whole tree turns brown, it's a goner.

Hmmm, Root damages. Seems cedars are also a compartmentalized tree, Root damage is branch damage.

Edit to add- unless you hit them with Roundup....
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!
