Yellowing Evergreens

yellowing needles on Scotch Austrian pinesBeginning in August of every year and continuing into the Fall, we’ll get calls from concerned clients that their evergreens trees are yellowing or browning. Many think their trees are dying.

Interior Yellowing of Evergreens or Pines is a common and normal occurrence. This happens to the innermost needles closest to the trunk or base of the limbs. As long as the outer portions of the trees are green, the trees are fine. If entire limbs are dying all the way out and into this year’s growth, then it’s a different story.
