Q.Norfolk pine tree

Zone 27888 | Anonymous added on January 20, 2019 | Answered

My pine tree has got brown branches at the bottom and in the middle, should I cut the brown branches off or what? I am afraid that I may have killed it . I have left water standing in the bottom of the bowl that the pot is in . I have also had it sitting in the window where the afternoon Sun comes in. Please help me save it .

Uh oh. I would add a little wettable sulfur, and dolomitic lime to the pot. Just a small spoonful of each, just to kill off anything in the soil. Also, it is ok to cut this out. It may affect the overall shape of the tree but it still has a chance to survive just fine.
