White Pine Decline?

Asked May 24, 2020, 1:22 PM EDT

Can you diagnose the brown needles and lighter-colored green branches on this white pine in Okemos? We have usually fed it each spring and fall with Holly-Tone organic fertilizer. Some of newer branches on the tree appear healthy. Can anything be done to reverse this condition?

There could be more than one diagnosis to your tree problem. If you go to canr.msu.edu and put in a search for white pine there are several articles that describe white pine diseases. You could also consult a certified arborist and get their opinion. To find a certified arborist in your area search on trees are good.com.
