    Pine trees that have grown old are usually well established in it’s environment. Meaning it has a vast network of roots and are capable of recieving their nutrients from the soil.

    If you’re tree seems to be dying, it may be something else effecting the tree and you should then have a more in debth diagnosis of the problem. Keep in mind, yes well established pines do well on their own, but even these trees need help during severe droughts. You can check for this if their needles are either brittle or brown.

    Pines require about 1 inch of water each week and a moist field of 18 to 20 inches deep. BE WARNED, do not drown the tree. Most likely you won’t if it is a full size pine tree, but you should be especially careful with new saplings.
