In your experience, can the presence of pales weevils alone result in the death of relatively mature pine trees? I know they can devastate newly planted seedlings in Pine plantation settings, especially in areas that have recently been cleared. I was recently called to a homeowners property. They have had several Pines recently cut and removed that had completely browned out. They took tissue samples to the local Extension Agent who diagnosed the presence of weevils. Is there more likely another cause or combination of causes? The trees range in size from 10-20" DBH. Thank You for any input. I am here to learn!
