I have one black pine in yard, its growing vigorously, on some new candles transition to needles the sheath or base of needles is black, and have been for approx 2 week, upon inspection this area is soft compared to rest of needle. Distal to the sheath the needles are appear green and healthy and firm. Other than a few small shoots dying, tree appears healthy, dark green needles lots of new growth. I'm concerned because none of my other pines exhibit same symptoms. (and one of my favorites)

Anyone familiar with this? is it sick? what to do? should i be worried?

I live in north Florida 8b-9a
