A number of our community trees have been scheduled for destruction due to the new water project.  Pines Talk Forum has discussed a few dead CEDAR trees.  I personally have not noticed the CEDAR trees dying.  I'll have to drive around and check them out.  What I HAVE noticed is that there are a number of pine trees of the same species that have dead or dying branches.  I am wondering what has caused this?

While this image is similar to what is happening to our pine trees, this tree suffers from a mountain pine beetle infestation.  If anyone could take a few photographs of our trees it would be appreciated.  Close up photos of the trunk, and needles of the tree would assist in identifying the issue we have.

Email and response  sent from forestry officials were forwarded to board members, the office and maintenance.  Three different officials have offered to assist in identifying the issues a few of us have noted in our trees.  Specifically a species of pine and in our cedar trees. The emails to the office DID NOT GET THERE this am and were sent back :(.  Posted a suggestion form and emailed it.

If you have a pine tree in or around your yard with brown needles and or a dying branch on the tree please take a photograph of the trunk and the affected branch and send it to [email protected] so that WA DNR may assist in identifying the problem.

Thank you!
