Scotch Pine Tree Disease

Asked September 30, 2015, 12:11 PM EDT

Have a 50ft Scotch Pine that has the ends of the branches turning brown. Some Scotch Pine in near by yards have same issue or died. I believe it is pine wilt disease. Small 1/4 in holes all around the tree trunk. Can anything be done to save these trees???

In an effort to be accurate in the analysis, would you please trim off the ends of some of the branches and bring them into our office at 10990 Marshall Road, Covington, KY 41015?

We will forward to plant pathology on campus for a definitive answer.
