This place we moved in to has two fairly tall ponderosa pines that were planted as fairly big trees. They are turning quite brown. We have been watering the needles quite often. We water the tree about once a week. What can we do to get them to survive?

There are several serious pest and disease problems that can cause browning, but weather conditions and cultural conditions can also sometimes contribute to browning. You will need a specific diagnosis before you can begin to treat the trees. I would suggest you work with your local county extension to obtain a specific diagnosis of the problems. Once you know that, you can determine how to proceed. Sorry I can't be of more help.
