Pine Trees Have Spots Where Branches Are Full Of Brown Needles
Question From: Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
Q: I'm a renter and have been caring for these two large pine tree's for over four years. I live in southern Nevada and always make sure I water them well,especially in summer.The landlord had someone come in to do some yardwork and I noticed he cut off quite a few lower branches. Now,there are spots where the whole branch is full of brown needles! Any idea as to why the tree's are so rapidly losing so many pine needles?
The trees may have contracted a disease or an insect infestation. Only a professional, a certified arborist can give you an accurate diagnosis. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
