    Hi. We have a pine tree in the garden see photo. I'm not sure what it is, but it doesn't look well. It's been ok for 2 years and it's has some cones on it but i think it needs some TLC just not sure what

    Cheers

    Sorry, I think it's beyond help Paul. The branches are dying and unfortunately with most pines, if you were to prune them out, it wouldn't replace them.

    Yeah that's what we thought. It's down in the veg patch so I think I'll get some Rubarb planted there instead.

      Looks like some kind of blue spruce, just wondering if it had an insect attack last summer.
