Affected needles have reddish brown spots or bands. The needle tips beyond the bands dry out and turn brown a couple weeks after the bands appear, while the bases remain green Dothistroma needle blight is caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella pini Rostr. This common pine pathogen kills needles of all ages and can weaken or kill Austrian pine trees. Recently, we have also found Dothistroma on white pine. The main symptom is dead needle tips beyond the yellow to tan needle spots

Symptoms of Dothistroma needle blight can easily be confused with those of brown spot disease or other fungal needle cast diseases, such as Lophodermium and Cyclaneusma needle casts.

Dothistroma needle blight, which is caused by the fungal pathogens Dothistroma septosporum and pini, infects over 70 species of pine worldwide. While first described from the northern hemisphere, Dothistroma needle blight is most damaging as an invasive disease of exotic plantations in the southern hemisphere. Radiata pine is particularly susceptible to this disease and substantial growth.
