You might do better to check the NCSU Ag Extension website as
a first step:
http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/ I think there are
probably a lot of other resources online, too.

Digression--and it only applies if the pines are near your
house, not ones out in the woods:

Personally, I think pines are hundred-foot weeds; they drop
mess all year, and it's only a question of time before you
have to have them cut down, or have them fall on your house.
I think anybody who plants pines deliberately in a residential
area ought to be jailed. But that's just me.

Default pine tree disease..

It seems I recall reading about some kind of a blight or fungus that
afflicts pine trees. We are concerned that some of our pines have it.
They have swollen spots on the trunks and some branches, a kind of rust
discoloration in spots. A couple have died. Anyone know what this is,
and is there something one can do to keep it from spreading?
Thanks

Sounds like Fusiform Rust. Not sure anything can be done about it,
aside from cutting down the infected trees and trying to keep existing
trees healthy. Pine trees are great in certain locations. Native
plants. They were here before you were.

Not neccesarily the pines you see tho.
Supposedly much of North Carolina was hardwood forest and longleaf pine
before it was almost completely deforested for agricultural purposes
by the colonists. The reforestation of North Carolina started in the 20th
century with a big boost from the great depression and the end of the
family farm.

I remember reading that much of NC was covered with huge poplar trees
before it got logged. As per Chris' post, the Cradle of Forestry was
started by the Vanderbilts (of Biltmore House) in what is now the
Pisgah National Forest.
