Natural needle drop on arborvitae, pines and spruce We are starting to see very noticeable natural needle drop on some evergreens such as arborvitae, pines and spruce. This is a process where two- to four-year-old interior needles turn yellow, then brown, and eventually drop off. Those who aren’t familiar with this process often are concerned about the health of the tree. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs every year and does not hurt the tree.
However, some years it is much more noticeable than others. Be sure to check that only the older needles are affected - the needles on the tips of the branches should look fine.
Join us on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 9 a.m. for a wreath-making class. We will be using natural greenery to create these wreaths and all materials will be provided. There is a $10 fee, and registration is required. Spaces are limited, so please call our office at 859-873-4601.
