Can moles kill pine trees
I have what I have been told are red pines and Australian pines in my back yard. We had several arborists here to give their opinion as to why the pines were dying. We were told that they are not native so they were subject to disease. We were also told that there were too many other trees that were blocking the light to the pines. However, when you walk in my woods, your foot sinks due to what I am sure are moles. I will contact two other universities to solve this problem but I hope you can do it first. Five years ago, I took out more than 20 40-foot pines at a cost of over $5,000 hoping the arborists I spoke to were right. I don't think they were. Last night I opened up a water hose for an hour and there was no water standing. Can you tell me if moles can kill pine trees? Please look at my soil. If it is moles, can you tell me how to get rid of them for good? Thank you. Mike Borgen 651-600-1512.
Maybe instead of diagnosing from afar you may want to see what is going on here?
