Browning of interior needles of Green Giant and Emerald Green arborvitae. The older, inner leaves (needles) of evergreens (such as Green Giant and Emerald Green arborvitae) may turn yellow or brown and drop in late summer and fall. This is usually due to a natural aging phenomenon similar to the dropping of leaves of deciduous trees. If the previous growing season has been favorable for growth with moderate temperatures and good soil moisture, the shedding will occur over a relatively long period through the fall and not be as noticeable. Under adverse cultural conditions, and with newly planted evergreens, this natural leaf drop may occur within a few days or a week. The annual shedding will not be as noticeable on older evergreens with denser foliage.
