Hello and thank you for contacting AaE for help.

It would help to have a picture of the tree to demonstrate if the needle loss is all over or just from one section of the tree. Also, a picture of the needles that have dropped. From your description it sounds like entire clusters of needles are dropping. Also, examine the base of the needles to see if there are any chew marks or an appearance of tearing.

Please respond to this email with your photos. Thank-you.
