Hoping that is it. It is planted in full sun. But in general the tree does not look healthy. The cones at the top are brown. I have another one in the front of the house that looks okay. Very sad finding it looking this way as we are finally getting some relief from the heat. Thanks for your response David.

Hello Aileen ... 'Skylands' is notorious and infamous for sun scorch, burning badly until they are about 10 years old or so. It's 99% likely that's what's going on.

Why is the elevation so important? Is it the temp quoted at that elevation or the temp for the region, when they say 80F is that at the elevation or at lower urban level? Does the elevations impact on the composition of the air impact their growth? If the temperature ranges and terrain is the same at lower elevations can they be cultivated? I would love to grow these in Hill Country TX but our elevation is lower at only 1650ft. Summer temps get higher than 80F at lower elevations but the constant breeze at the higher elevations lowers the temps considerably especially in the valley slopes. Has anyone had success growing outside of their perfect range?
