Shrub conifer turned brown this month

I have noticed many trees and bushes (in my own garden  as well) have been hit with this dying brown patches . When on holiday in Cornwall I noticed rows of different trees all affected on the same side ,brown and dying patches.It might be they can not take all the wet weather of winter or by some sort of virus.when you are out and about note the trees and bushes around you and see if they are affected too!
