Q.my pine trees look sick to me….the local nurseryman told me this is natural but it sure doesn’t look natural to me.
I purchased property a year ago and don’t remember the trees looking like this…there are a lot of brown needles

Pines will normally do this around Autumn. This is the time of year for shedding dead needles, and is not usually a concern, unless it starts losing enough to look bare.
