Default Dead Pine Trees Throughout TV

We have noticed a very large number of dead pine trees, throughout TV, some around ponds, others on courses and public landscaping areas. What gives? Is there a disease, bug infestation specific to pines? When will these long dead trees be removed/replaced?

Care you certain they are pines and not cypress. Cypress trees look similar and the leaves,turn burnt orange in fall and will come back green in the spring.

What gives? How would posters on TOTV know? Or when, if really dead, they will be removed?

Any chance you could post some pictures? I don't mean to question your post, but I have seen many brown, leafless cypress trees. I don't recall seeing any dead pines. I have not been looking for dead pines, that's why I say I'm not questioning what you say...I could very well have missed them. But I am curious where they are and what they look like.

Awww! I'm truly curious. Since my last post, I now remember I have seen the occasional obviously-long-dead pine tree on a couple of golf courses. I'm wondering if those are the types of trees you're talking about? And if so, about how common they are throughout TV?

Please don't let one disagreeable post stop you. Trust me...if you do...you'll never post!! It's commonplace...you just need to look past them!!

Thanks Polar Bear. I'll let the Administrator handle my complaint. However, I lived up north for 45 years, and DO know the difference between cedar and cypress trees. What I posed as a simple "any one know...." went waaaaaay beyond my intent.

I noticed a large, glaring example of awfully dead-looking pines(?) yesterday on O'Dell, going westward from Canal Street, around a retention pond on the left/south of O'Dell. They looked dead and scraggly, and my thoughts were that this is going to be costly to replace in so many areas where there are retention ponds bordered by these trees.

However, as someone mentioned, they could be cypress trees, because those on O'Dell looked exactly like the first photo here in the UF website, where they say this:
"People in both urban and rural areas can benefit from planting cypress. For example, these trees can enhance the aesthetics and functioning of stormwater drainage systems (See Figure 1). Some landowners may voluntarily plant cypress to provide these services, while others may be required to construct or restore cypress wetlands to mitigate for wetland destruction.

Bald Cypress is a deciduous evergreen, meaning it has foliage similar to an evergreen which it sheds in the winter. Bald Cypress has an outstanding coppery fall color, and a soft droopy needle which adds texture to the landscape.

I also have noticed many dead trees. One in particular is near the practice putting green by the Saddlebrook Rec center. There also is a number of evergreens, or I should say "never green" along the Saddlebrook cart path. I guess I should take the time to call in the complaint. Sadly I don't make the time for such calls as I'm usually busy making complaints with century link & insurance company.
Glad this topic was brought up.
