It’s that time of year for what I call “Pine Panic.”
More specifically, “White Pine Panic.”
It usually goes something like this: “My pine tree is turning brown and dying, what should I do?”
Chances are, the answer is “Nothing.”
As we see on the White Pine (Pinus strobus) in the photo, the shedding of older needles is often a cause for concern, but nothing to worry about.
