If a pine tree only has sparse needles, is this a sign of a health issue
We apologize for the delay in answering your question, our office was closed for a week over the holiday season.
Your pine tree has sustained a large amount of needle drop. This certainly is a sign that the tree is declining. You should have the tree evaluated by a certified arborist. You want the person who looks at the tree to be certified by the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture). To help find one in your area go to the following website, www.treesaregood.org
