We have been watching a stand of Pines the last few weeks.
They seem to be turning orange all over. Will they recover and live…I am not hopeful.
Here is what they should look like. This is a similar stand just down the road. Note the amount of needles turning color are toward the inside of the tree….not all over the tree. Pines normally drop some needles every year in the Fall.
My best guess is that someone who knows who that might fly around in a helicopter spraying crops got his chemicals all mixed up, or there was a heck of a wind…just a guess of course.
If I were the property owner I would be
pissed very angry.
