dying pine tree

Zone sheboygan wi, 53081 | thogersenc added on June 12, 2016 | Answered

My white pine is losing and dropping green needles. It was very late in producing new candles and then they were very small and not growing (one half inch). Others in yard same age with candles 5" long. It appears to be losing more needles at the top of the tree. Is this a disease?
