White pine needle Drop

Asked September 20, 2017, 3:10 PM EDT

Hello, I'm trying to figure out why our white pines are dropping needles. My research has led me to believe it's just early annual needle drop, jump started from drought stress. Could this be anything else? Thanks,

Charles County Maryland

We viewed your photos. This looks like normal fall color which precedes needle drop. See our website for more information https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/normal-shedding-older-leaves-trees-and-shrubs
