Thank you for your question. It is very difficult to diagnose a plant problem without a photo and, often, a plant tissue examination. Having a local lab is preferred but, if you have none, the following Extension article may help in narrowing the issue(s): https://extension.psu.edu/norfolk-island-pine-diseases Good luck!
