    Interesting. I'll have to ask my neighbors if they feel the needle fall is increasing here. I was shocked at how much they drop when we moved to NC but I have nothing to compare to other than my parents' OLD arborvitae which dropped a ton too. We have tons of birds too thankfully and not so thankfully (when the hawks eat my chickens.)

    So it occurred to me that my trees might simply be starving. The soil here is hardpacked clay and I’ve never fertilized the trees beyond letting the leaf/needle litter stay in place. Unlike the acres of hardwood forest that was here “naturally” before, all the evergreens were transplanted as ornamentals. I’ll bet they just need some nutrients, and I hope it’s not too late. Must research what to use—maybe compost tea and fish emulsion.
