Are you sure those a're "bites"? I don't know of anything that would willingly bite a pine, especially more than once. They look like cankers, which are a sign of infection of many different kinds. I would isolate this plant until you can positively rule out infection.

Hi Stan

It was my thought too...it is only one branch that has the problem..it is the topbranch on this tree

I would be unhappy to cut it away now....hope for more responces before I take action

Kind regards Yvonne

I agree that it looks pathogenic. I am interested in knowing what it proves to be.

Pathogens are easier to identify if one knows the common ones for where region where the tree is now or was before your ownership. Any chance that it is mistletoe?

I have been through a older book, I forgot we had...my husband reminded me of it..
It appears to be hagldamage...no wonder if it is so...the branch is VERY juicy and crisp, the needles strong and big... tomorrow I take a second look at it all, but for now am I thinking it is hagl....the sice, looking like a tiny bite, no strange sapflow, inc. the weather we just had.

Kind regards Yvonne  Smile I will be back if I dont think it is hagl after all, and something else show up
