Pine tree at Edwards Gardens

(Question)

Good morning,

I love your garden and I do my early morning walk every day. I noticed one of the very beautiful pine trees near the second bridge after Edwards Gardens Don Central bridge one pine tree which is attacked by termites or ants. It’s bottom trunk is really not in good shape. Is there anything you can do to treat this beautiful tree before it’s too late?
I’m attaching some pictures of this pine tree to help you identify it.
Sincere thank you,

Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners.

It is always sad to see a large mature tree succumb to pests or disease. Unfortunately, your photos were not attached to your question. My suggestion would be to contact the Toronto Botanical Garden at . 416-397-1341. They will be able to direct your concern to the appropriate people.
