Also asked, why are the needles falling off my pine tree?
The culprit is probably some type of disease or insect. So, if one-third to one-fourth of the needles on the inner parts of your evergreen tree are falling off, it is probably just a normal sign of aging. Just rake up the dead needles, or better yet, leave them under the tree for a good mulch.
Likewise, how do you keep the needles on a Christmas tree? Immediately upon getting the tree home, be sure to put it in water. Either set the tree into its stand or place it in a bucket of water if you're not going to decorate it right away. The base of the cut tree should never dry out, in order to keep the needles fresh, so be sure to check the water level every day.
Besides, do pine needles stop falling?
Pine trees can hold their needles for 2-5 or more years, depending on the species. Spruce trees generally hold onto their needles longer than pine trees do, approximately 5-7 years. One evergreen tree that is very noticeable as it loses its leaves in fall is Eastern White Pine.
What time of year do pine trees drop their needles?
On many evergreens, this happens in late summer or fall, although yews drop their old needles in spring or early summer. Needle drop can be quite dramatic and alarming on pines, especially white pines.
