Pine wilt is a common disease that causes browning and death of pines, especially Scots pines. Austrian, mugo, red, jack, and white pine may also be affected, but less commonly than Scots pines. Affected trees turn brown suddenly, either over the entire tree or beginning on a few branches.
The cold, gray days of winter can be hard on the mind, body, and spirit. Fortunately, there are effective ways to beat the winter blues. Some individuals like to take a brisk walk in the woods after a snow. Others prefer to sit in front of a roaring fire and read a good book. Many gardeners, on the other hand, love to leaf through garden catalogs and make plans for the coming spring.
