Can you get a close up of the needles of the tree branch and the tip of the branch please ..it looks a bit like a Larch ..
They are quite susceptible to all manner of grass/weed killer sprayed on the or watered into the ground near them .

Here's a closeup. Each cluster of needles is about the size of a silver dollar.


104 degrees predicted. I think it's gonna be hotter than that. Our a/c has been on since 10am. Thank goodness I have rocks to paint and charity work to do online, cuz it's absolutely brutal outside.  Sad

The needle clusters look larch-like to me, too.

Well, that's the closest thing I've seen yet, but the shape of the tree isn't right and mine has never produced any cones. I know I've seen this tree somewhere before, but it seems it was in some exotic garden.  bounce cyclops pale

The shape of the tree?? Wink Poor thing hasn't had a chance to reach it's potential. Probably affected its cone production, also.

Don't larch lose their needles in winter after they turn golden brown?  Does this tree?

Nope. I'm going back out and search for clues. It has been too hot to hang around out there for the past 2 days.
