Redwood health

Question

I'm the new owner of a property with a few Redwood trees on it and I've noticed on 2 of the trees, on a number of branches the needles have turned brown.  These Redwood trees are old and established.    Could the dry weather we have had recently, be impacting them?  Has anyone else noticed this around their areas, is this normal or should I be concerned?  They are majestic trees and I would hate to lose them - any advice appreciated.

Hi Birchbark, I don't know what's causing the browning on your trees, or whether it's a serious concern, but I've known other redwoods to have similar looking symptoms at this time of year in the past and they went on to be absolutely fine in following years. It might be worth getting them checked out though, just to be sure.

How long have they been like that .

The first thing that comes to mind was the artic wind in Feb. I've seen redwoods wind scorched before

Thanks for your reponses.  I've only noticed it in the last week or so, but it's a little out of the way so it could have started browning earlier without me noticing.  We're in the Northampton area, so not the coldest of spots, but this has been an unusually cold start to spring.  I'll keep my eye on it and get some professional help if it appears to be deteriorating further.  Thanks again!
