Pine tree disease

Asked November 29, 2018, 9:39 AM EST

We have one tree completely dead from a disease. The other trees on our property are 40 ft. high and they are showing signs of the disease. Could you please recommend a solution? A spray and how to apply to a tall tree. Thanks. Marlene.

Marlene,

Before I can recommend treatment for your trees, I need to know what is the cause of the problem (disease, insects, environmental). Since you have other mature evergreen trees nearby, I recommend that you send a sample to the MSU Diagnostics lab so they can determine the exact cause. Then we will be able to suggest an appropriate treatment.

For information about submitting a sample please visit https://pestid.msu.edu/submit-samples/

Their report to you will include appropriate treatment recommendations; if you have any further questions after receiving that report you may contact us or call the lab.
