The fact that the pine is losing limbs, especially large ones, is a
symptom of a diseases or dying pine. Unlike oaks, sycamores, etc.,
pines are quite resiliant to winds and snow and ice loads, and their
branches do no break off as a matter of course.
If this is a diseased or parasitised tree, the problem may migrate to
other trees of the same or similar species. It would behoove the city
fathers, therefore, to remove and burn this tree to keep their city
landscape from becoming one covered with ravaged and dying trees!
