|Hello. I hope you can help me as I have 2 separate issues happening this season. In the pics below are 2 different types of trees.
The first 2 pics I believe are cedars, and they started turning brown near the bases but now we're noticing small areas turning brown in other areas on these as well. We have several of these on our property and it seems to be happening to most of them. Any suggestions please?
The next 3 pics (don't know what species this tree is) which has never had a problem, this season has more than half of it that appears to be dormant, dying or even dead - hopefully this isn't the case. Is there anything we can do here?
Really appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you!

|Provide more images of the mostly dead contorted tree. It would be especially helpful to see the live part of it. At least: start with images of the whole plant, and then progressively more detailed pictures of its component parts.
The upright evergreen conifers are Thuja occidentalis - also known as White Cedar - and the dead foliage looks like what is colloquially referred to as urine burn. Are there canine residents with access to these plants? The dead tips could also just be broken stems which could result from close contact with mowing equipment.
Neither instance are death sentences, but adjustment to behaviors can eliminate the problem.

|maybe a contorted filbert, they are popular,
Harry Lauder's Walking Stick (Corylus avellana 'Contorta')
and on the evergreens-I agree with dog urine.
