I have a 20-30 foot pine tree that is dropping its pine needles. They are brown and falling. The limbs on one side of the tree are brown mostly on the lower portion of the tree. The brown part of the tree faces the east. The western facing portion of the tree has all green needles and limbs.

Based on your description I am not not certain what is happening to your tree, although it is possible that there was some sort of root damage or possibly the beginning of an insect or disease problem on that side of the tree. You might want to consult with a professional arborist or your county extension (350-2540) for a more specific diagnosis and suggested course of action. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
