White Pine Tree Diseased? #162305

Asked December 14, 2013, 11:25 AM EST

I live in Hanover County and have a 25 year old white pine that is in a row of pines of similar age.  The tree's needles are a light pale green color and are half the length of the other pine's needles which are a much darker green. Length is 2.5 in vs 5 in.  Otherwise the tree seems in good health.  I am concerned that it has a disease that may spread to the other trees.Thank you.

Please send me an e-mail to jschroer@vt.edu or call me at 804-752-4307. I need a little more info and need to know where you live in the county. For most of the county, we are out of the natural range for white pine. I'd also like you to send me some digital pictures so I can examine the symptoms - but call me first.
