The top of our pine trees turned brown and died. They looked chewed on by what we think are beetles so we cut off the eaten branches. We'd like the trees sprayed with an organic insecticide as we have a dog in the yard and bird feeders/baths. You have been to our home a few times to do pruning. Can you do this and what is the cost?
What you are describing sounds like an insect called White Pine Weevil. They are active very early in the spring, and cause the new dominant lead at the top of White Pines to curl, brown, and die. They will not kill the tree. We would be glad to come by and assess your situation first-hand. Click here to schedule an appointment.
