Q : Two mature Austrian pines 35 years old straddle the driveway of our St. Thomas home. For the past couple of years, one tree has been losing its needles big time, and is looking bare. The other tree is catching up with its loss. Any suggestions? I, too, have this problem on the Austrian pine in my backyard.

Austrian Pine Plant Profile
Herein we focus on Pinus wallichiana, Himalayan Pine in tribute to a commonly unsung, even forgotten, plant collector-botanist, Nathaniel WallichThe large genus Pinus includes at least evergreen species worldwide.
When identifying most plants, a closer observation helps establish key visual clues. Pinus wallichiana, Himalayan Pine needles at inches-long are longer than the other 5-needle species mentioned. Additionally, their needles are often slightly bent near the base helping to create a pendulous habit. To the viewer this provides a subtle, yet distinct graceful drooping of its branchlets.
Pine cones do vary in size and even shape on the same tree, as well as from different trees. Each were trained physicians as well as outstanding botanists in their time and place. This during the later life of the great Sir Joseph Banks , who believed in the internationalism of science, and successfully caused almost every ship sailing to Britain from any British colony to carry plants.
Besides Pinus wallichiana he was also commemorated in plant taxonomy with Taxus wallichiana , Ulmus wallichiana , Lilium wallichiana, Dryopteris wallichiana , Schefflera wallichiana , Geranium wallichianum , and Rubus wallichii , among others. Twenty different genera include species within them named honoring Nathaniel Wallich.
In at the second founding meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society MHS , to which Mount Auburn would soon owe its very existence, a committee was chosen to create a list of honorary and corresponding members. This exemplary first list included notable botanist, Augustin P. Your email address will not be published. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

Pine Sawyers: Don’t Let These Beetles Saw Down Your Tree
Tree on the far left was killed by pine wilt. The others quickly became infested. There is a problem affecting pine trees in Nebraska, pine wilt. Pine wilt is caused by a tiny organism that can produce big problems. With a little education you can be well informed on this problem and know what to do if it happens. The cause of pine wilt is smaller than we can see with the naked eye. The pinewood nematode is a very small worm-like organism that attacks the tissues that move water and nutrients throughout the tree. Nematodes hitch a ride on pine sawyer beetles and fall off when they reach a new tree to infest.
Trees for urban yards
Pines have had a hard year, and now we are seeing another problems developing. Many pines suffered from the bitter cold in February, especially those suited to southern areas. Some pines do very well in our zone, cold hardiness zone 7. Unfortunately, in February, we were at zone 5 temperatures for over a week. Pines like slash pine, spruce pine, and longleaf pine are zoned for zone 7.
Hello and welcome back to the homegrown horticulture podcast on today's episode pine needle scale and the walnut apocalypse.

Walnut and Pine Tree Problems
February 13,Their name is deceiving because, while they are native to Australia, they aren't pines or even conifers.They are flowering trees with separate male and female flowers, and what look like needles are really green twiglets with close-set circles of tiny leaves that drop at the first sign of a drought. In the photo to the right, the light-colored lines are where leaves where once attached. Most of the photosynthesis takes place in the twiglets. There are three species of Australian pine Casuarina spp that have been imported into Florida for various purposes.
Growing Concerns: Sphaeropsis attacks province's pines
Diplodia tip blight is a common fungal disease of Austrian pine, although Scots, mugo, and red pine may also be affected. The Diplodia fungus infects the growing buds and shoots, causing the newest needles of a tree to be stunted and brown. These needles appear as short brown tufts at the ends of the branches. Small black reproductive structures of the fungus can be seen at the base of these stunted needles. The Diplodia fungus more properly called Sphaeropsis also produces spores in fruiting structures that develop on the second-year female cones. These spores are carried by rain throughout the tree.
The pines require full sunlight and are generally fast growing. The pine family includes the commonly grown large species Austrian Pine Pinus nigra, Japanese.

Pines often provide a backbone to a home landscape. They are a constant presence through all seasons providing shade, shelter from the wind and rugged beauty. Usually pines are maintenance free — give them the water they need and they seem to thrive with a little minor pruning now and again. Too often, homeowners take pines for granted. This is particularly true for ornamental pines.
Gardening: Evergreen needles, perennials
Contact your local county Extension office through our County Office List. During the past winter, the needles of many pines growing in Fort Collins and surrounding communities have turned a sickly red-brown color. While several factors may be involved, a likely cause of the discoloration is a condition known as winter drying. In addition, many pines were injured during the sudden temperature drop in NovemberThe temperature dropped more than 50 degrees in a 24 hour period. Trees were starting their winter hardening process, but our weather leading to this event was fairly mild. Injury appears to be most prominent on exposed sides of the tree.

There are seven families of coniferous trees and shrubs found around the world. What they all have in common is that they use cones for seed production. They also all lose their needles, albeit some more frequently than others.
