Around this time of year the same question always comes in...
"Why are my pine needles turning brown?"
It is rather alarming when you see that many brown needles all over one tree.
But the important part here is that the brown needles are the inner, older needles, not the new needles near the growing tips.
Not to worry, this is a natural occurrence as white pines shed their older needles.
It occurs anywhere from late summer to early fall, depending on weather conditions.
