We live in Tennessee and are in desperate need of advice. We
have exhausted local sources (extension agencies, local tree
services) and are hoping someone on the Internet will be kind
enough to help.
We have lost a very large Eastern White Pine that is in close
proximinty to another healthy tree. Last fall the needles
began to turn brown begining with the top of the
tree. Within four months the entire tree appeared dead.
The previous owner told us he had cut down and burned the stump
of a similar pine
because it had some kind of infestation. The sick tree is
located within twenty feet of the burned stump.
What possible disease or infestation does the tree have?
Is there anything we can do to save the healthy tree beside
it? (It is a magnificent specimen, in excess of forty feet
tall and beautifully shaped. Our hearts will break over
Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
