How Long Will Completely Brown Pine Trees Remain Standing

Question From: FLORIDA
Q: Two very old pine trees have entirely turned brown on our rental property after a hurricane in Sept. of this year. How long can they possibly stay till taken down?

A: Depends on the type of trees. I live in Michigan and am not familiar with many trees that live in your state. I'd get the advice of a certified arborist. To find one in your area go to and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
