Keeping this in view, is my Chinese pistache dying?

The leaves are yellowing, the berries are black, and it looks like it's dying. If a tree's leaves are showing spotting or uneven color change, it can be a sign of a problem. This year, however, we have been seeing unprecedented dieback and wilting of leaves and berries in Chinese pistaches.

Likewise, are Chinese pistache trees messy? This is a very reliable tree with one true gift — sort of a Susan Boyle of the arboreal world. That gift is brilliant fall color: orange, red, sometimes yellow. For most of the year, Chinese pistache is so understated and well behaved (no messy fruit, broken branches, leaf drop) that no one notices it.

Consequently, do pistachio trees lose their leaves?

How long do Chinese pistache trees live?
