    20171021_165108.jpg 20171021_165115.jpg I think this is a norwegian pine, and it appears to be losing a greater than normal quantity of pine needles. the tree was planted 1 year ago. I have attached a picture of some cracking bark which may be part of the problem.

    Does anyone have an idea what the issue is?

    Natural fall shedding. No problem at all. I'll get at least 3 calls for it this week.

    Sean, I'm not sure what you're calling a "Norwegian pine", a google search indicated that Red pine (P resinosa) is sometimes called a Norway pine, but Red pine is a hard pine. You're photo indicates a soft pine.
