Weed Killer Damaged Pine Trees

mdfaccApril 11, 2011

Hello all:

The last owner of my home used weed killer at the base of three mature pine trees in the backyard in an attempt to kill weeds growing in the area. Since then, the trees have many brown needles, and their needles are less dense (analogous to a man with thinning hair).

I have many other mature pines in the yard, all vibrant and healthy. Can I do anything to restore the three sick trees to their former health?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My lawn spray company applied DuPont's Imprelis (weed killer) which is causing death to pines and spruce around the country. They applied Essential Plus 1-0-1 as a soil drench to saturate the root zone with vitamins and minerals-the fact sheet on Essential Plus sounds wonderful. You might want to look into that.
