I've noticed that my Shimpaku is losing its vibrant green color. See the attached photo.

Is this normal for this time of year (in Michigan?)

Have you checked for mites and other critters? When was the last time you used a pesticide on it? Do you have other similar trees you can compare with?

Oh and enjoy your Michigander winter, I'm originally from Spring Lake over on the west coast and I don't miss the winters thank you.

No mites. Did the foliage shake test and nothing shows on the paper.

Looks like cones forming on the ends, with a little dying of old stuff.

They just happen to be the same color.

IMO.
