Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in trees. I would like to help you today. This post is not your answer, but is only a request for additional information. So don't rate my service yet - we're just beginning.

Is the fungus like mushrooms, or is it more like a fine, powdery dusting?

Have the trees shown any other symptoms - yellowing or browning needles, losing needles, dead twigs, etc.?

In what state do you live? Different states have different problems.

Thank you.
