I know nothing of the Vancoover climate but could the new growths have been frosted? This species is frost sensitive. Another possability causing browning is exposure to strong drying wind (salt laden?) and drying out of the compost. Large trees with well developed root systems suck much of the soil moisture away in the spring when sap is rising, so a clay pot would not gain much moisture via capilliary action. A large evergreen can have a very dense canopy so very little rain reaches the ground.

Try the hybrids first.
