What's Wrong with the Evergreen Trees?!


So basically, they didn't know, just guessed.
I looked at the photos of the red boxed items. Looks like pine cone like items. Basically seed pods.
On the close up I saw white things. Were insects ruled out?

I have it lately on my couple dozen Emerald Green Arbovitie's a noticable

amount more than I've ever seen it.

The midget glode arbovities look good in spite of a bit of neglect this year

in watering during the dry times. and they can be fussy .

White pines look great but the Austrian Pines had a tough year.

I'm not concerned ...Oh reminds me I think I'll make some white pine tea this weekend.

It's most likely not insect damage as the destruction caused by borers, etc are far more concentrated and starting at the base system.
Disease would be more likely than insect damage but this is probably not the case as you did not mention the wood branches themselves being noticably different, only the leaves. Has rainfall been normal throughout the summer and fall so far in your neck of the woods? Did you experience a Hot/Dry Summer? I bet your answer lies within your responses to those two questions.

Thanks.

The branches did not strike me as abnormal. They seem okay.

Rainfall appears to be within normal range, though here the temperature throughout the summer has been cooler than normal just by a bit and mild really all the way.

Thanks. I think the white things are just depth of field when taking a picture and not anything else. When I walk up to the trees, I don't see any unusual insects or anything out of place.
