Pinus contorta var. latifolia / lodgepole Pine


Kit Crandall

Could you give me a name of someone I could ask questions of? My 'Chief Joseph' has been growing beautifully for about 8 years and this year the needles are all turning brown instead of green. What can I do to help/save this magnificent tree? I am heart broken at this situation. Any help would be welcome.

hello Kit ... in what part of the world is your tree planted? By aware that this conifer is adapted to thrive in high desert / semi-arid steppe climates. Excessive summer moisture, humidity and warm nights are usual fatal to it over time.
