I got w weeks off starting Monday and was going to do major outside work, wanted to know name of these pines, and why they look so sickly. All were planted when house was built 30 years ago.. (how time flies........don't blink)

No. 2 looks like a spruce. It needs full sun and it may have a bad spider mite infestation. http://www.missouribotanicalga...
No. 5 might be a Bird's Nest Spruce (Picea abies 'Nidiformis') It also needs full sun. They recover fairly quickly if moved out of deep shade.

For the most part they do not look like pines although some of the pictures are far too fuzzy or distant to identify. On the ones with needles can you check if the needles pull off individually or whether they come off in bunches, and if in bunches how many needles to a bunch.

The last one looks like possibly a nest spruce.

The one above it may be a juniper of some kind.

The first three are not identifiable to me, although the second may be a spruce. That's the one that most particularly needs needles pulled off. The first picture is just a blur.

Third doesn't look like pine or spruce - maybe a juniper but can't really tell.

Not a pine in sight. #2 is so spindly, it almost looks like a fir tree. Spruce would make more sense in your climate. #3 may be a redwood. #4 may be a juniper.

What we need:

Clearer photos.
Cones: color, size, sitting up or hanging down?
Stand back and take photos of the whole tree - overall shape would help.
