I have a hedge of yews and two in the middle are dying, why?

Yews, like the azaleas, prefer a very well-drained soil and amendment should be added to our clay soils before planting.  More times than not in the spring we get lots of rain and our soils become water logged making the conditions right for development of root rot disease.  Usually this disease becomes visible in plants in the summer when they are under heat stress and the pathogens have already damaged the roots and the plants start to die.
