LONGLEAF PINES SHEDDING THEIR OLDEST NEEDLES

Many people may be alarmed by the appearance of brown needles on longleaf pines in the sandhills and coastal plain. This is a normal occurrence; even evergreens have to shed their foliage sometime! The needles falling off now were produced two years ago. Normally, two year-old needles fall off in the fall, but if it is especially dry they will fall off in the summer.This doesn’t mean the trees are sick or dying. Losing the older foliage helps reduce water lost through transpiration.

Trees are very good at recycling nutrients, and old foliage is one of the most expendable resources for trees. Nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium are mobile elements and the tree is able to remove these from the foliage and store them elsewhere before the foliage drops. However, some important elements, particularly calcium and manganese, are not mobile and are lost with the foliage. Older needles containing these elements fall to the ground and serve as a natural mulch, holding in moisture for the trees and decomposing over time to make the nutrients available again.
