The lack of water can lead to Pinon Needle Scale. It has infected some trees on Tano. The needles that are a year old die so that the tips are green, but the rest of the twig is brown. The pinyon needle scale is a native sap-sucking insect found in the Southwest. Feeding by scales weakens trees by killing needles older than 1 year. Sometimes small trees are killed by repeated feeding and large trees weakened to such an extent that they fall victims to attack by the bark beetle.
