What is the best way to take care of this issue? It seems to becoming more of a problem for a few of my pine trees. I would prefer to take non-chemical remediation if at all possible.
From what I have read, the weevil only kills the leader of the tree, but not the entire tree itself.

You can prune out the affected section (you'll have to do that anyhow once you see the leaders been killed). Make sure you remove the entire leader down to the first whorl of baranches. Most pines will develope a new leader within several seasons, but you'll always have a hook in the tree at the point where you made your cut.

Thanks for the help
