I have a pine tree that is dying. It has two or three branches that are dead or dying. Is there any treatment that I can use to stop this?

There are several species of pine trees and not so simple to diagnosis from your description. Generally, many of the pine trees have needle drop towards the interior of the tree, which is natural. The needles usually stay on the tree 2 or 3 years, and then drop off as the newer needles on the end of the branches grow. A majority of tree problems can be attribute to abiotic stresses - that is non living stresses including mechanical injury, chemical injury, weather, drought, improper watering.
Best to prune out dead or dying branches and if you can bring them into our county Extension office, we may have a long term recommendation for plant health care for your pine.
