Christmas tree needles turning brown

Posted: 22/04/2013 at 19:36
Help! My Christmas tree needles are turning brown. The tree lives in a pot in the garden in sheltered position, but over the last month the needles are going brown. What can I do to save the tree? Thanks

Oops meant to add above any help would be extremely appreciated - it isn't a stellata magnolia if that's any help.

My plant is in the ground, not in a container and is nowhere near a wall.  It is in one of the borders in my garden.  I have put slug pellets around it and check it morning and evening for slugs/snails.   I did think about digging it up, and then replanting it somewhere else in the garden (if I can find some space) but someone told me it wasn't a good idea. There are no other marks or anything on the leaves they are just being eaten.  The plant is only about 4ft tall and the first year we had it it flowered but nothing since and very few leaves.

We lob the snails on our lawn by the bird feeders and the birds come and eat them (hopefully most of them as we keep finding empty shells).  My partner cuts the slugs in half with a pair of scissors - yuk - but then they don't come back!

Help - I have a problem with my magnolia - the leaves are either skeletal or have gone completely.  I thought it might be slugs or snails but can see no trails.  I have tried all the books to find out what it could be and looked on various internet sites but cannot find anything to help me.  I have only had the plant 2.5 years and it looks dead at the moment.  A neighbour told me to dig it up and burn it but I don't want to do that if I can save it.  Can anyone help me.

Thanks
