    Imagine that you decide to cut down a few pine trees in your yard, possibly because they are leaning a little too close to your house and you are concerned about damage to your house during a severe wind-storm. You cut the trees down in early spring prior to the start of hurricane season. Because of cost and other priorities, you leave the trees where they’ve fallen. In late fall of that year, or in early spring of the following year, you notice that the needles in the upper crowns of the live standing pine trees next to the felled trees have turned yellowish green and red. These symptoms indicate that the trees are dying.
