It is time to spray Pines for tip and needle blight diseases. The target time to spray is when the candles or shoots (new growth) begin to elongate which is normally in Late April-May. However, due to the unseasonably warm winter and spring, they are elongating right now. Timing of fungicide sprays are imperative to control the disease. If the spraying is done too early or too late, it is useless. We recommend a series of 2-3 sprays approx. 14-21 days apart. Please call us if you have any questions.
