That is odd…Christmas in September? What is that all about? It concerns the blight of the Northern Nevada pine tree. It is known as “needle blight and it generally describes the sudden demise of pine needles (tomorrow’s Christmas trees). It usually is spotted at the tip of the needle with a gray discoloration.
A comprehensive study of pine needle blight syndrome was conducted several years ago. There were a variety of factors cited as the cause of pine needle blight on the Northern Nevada landscape. There may be fungal pathogens or environmental stress, for example.
