Abstract:Can pine needle decoction tell the health of the tree? Last year I learned pine needle decoctions kill bacteria. This year I tested decoctions from pine exposed to mountain pine beetle. I collected samples of healthy, stressed and dead trees. I tested decoctions pH level and ability to fight bacteria.
