Yellow needles, need I fear?
We have a young pine tree that has yellow splotches on its needles. I am enclosing a photo of the tree. I read the article about the Douglas Fir Needle Midge and I fear that may be the problem. I would like your thoughts.- Deschutes County, OR
The needles turning brown is normal for pine trees this time a year. Each year pine trees lose their older, inner needles along the branch. So you don't have to do anything.
