Pine Tree Loss Changed Landscape
Our 40+ ft Pine (Norway, or White, I'm uncertain which) took a rapid decline this summer. I first noticed that the needles had a droplet on each tip. The sticky substance dripped off the tree as though it had just rained. Plants beneath the tree were covered with a white residue, and my hair and the dog's fur were gummy.
We moved Hosta, Japanese painted ferns, Daylilies, and three clumps of Hydrangea, Annabelle, anywhere we could find a spot. I had to water everything almost daily the rest of the summer, but I'm pretty sure everything settled in well.
Two azaleas (sp. unknown) in their new home.
Hardy begonia are going to over-winter in this bed till spring.
