White Pine "Wilt"

Asked May 17, 2018, 1:24 PM EDT

White Pine "Wilt" I am concerned with some orange-ish fungi on several white pines in Morrison County MN (FishTrap Lake). The needles on affected branches are brownish. I am attaching a photo of one of the trees where it exists and would appreciate any input. It is very dry in the area. Thanx - Keene McCammon

Extensive fungal growth on a tree often indicates internal rotting. Since several trees are involved, you might want to get a certified arborist look at them:
