Marty,
No, White Pines naturally drop some of their needles now in autumn, much like 
deciduous trees do.  But they don't drop them all at the same time (unlike 
deciduous trees), and thus remain "evergreen".

Subject: [CT Birds] OT - White Pines

I noticed at school today there were lots of brown white pine needles on
the ground and while I was driving home, saw a lot more brown needles on
trees.

I know red pines have been hit in the past, but is there something
affecting white pines now?
