Rhizosphaera Needle Cast
If you notice needle loss and or browning on your Colorado Blue Spruce, read this article on Rhizosphaera Needle Cast. This fungus may affect other conifers as well, but some are more resistant than others. Don't wait if you see any of the symptoms of this, because you will need to treat your tree(s) with a fungicide early on to help prevent further damage.
