Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain what is wrong with your mugo pine. It could be "white pine blight" which causes just what you described or it could possibly be attributed to the dry year we had, or it might be somethng else entirely. You might want to take a sample to the county extension (305-5742) and see if they can give you a more definite diagnosis. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
