Tall Pine Tree Shedding Bark

Anonymous added on May 23, 2014 | Answered

I have a tall Pine tree in my garden (I think a Scotch Pine), and this year I notice a significant number of pieces of bark around the base of the tree. Apart from that, the tree seems healthy but I do not want to risk having the tree die and fall out of control. Should I be concerned about this shedding bark issue?

If the tree seems healthy otherwise, it is likely nothing to worry over, though I would check for insect pests and other signs of stress (i.e. yellowing, dying out, etc.). This article may also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/peeling-bark-on-trees.htm
