Sick Pine Tree?

Question

Help please. I moved in to this house in November 2018. A few months later I had some one here doing a tree removal for me. He saw this pine and said it’s sick and dying. That’s all he knew though. 

 

Can you tell from these photos if there’s something wrong? What can I do? 

 

Thank you

Doesn't look like its dying, although thats not a great photo. Just looks like theres some deadwood in the crown which is normal for a mature tree.

 

Unless theres something else not shown in the photo that your guy mentioned?

It would be good to see a photo looking at the tree from the side, at a moderate distance.

Looks nothing wrong with the bark to me, but what do I know. At least he knew what bark was.

That would suggest he basically knows nothing.

 

Can't see anything at all wrong with that tree from the photos

Few dead wood sticks that could come out or not as the case may be . Nothing abnormal there . Tree looks in good health to me .

Go all the way then and fit a hiab but think about the overall wait you can carry.

Weight a bit their eggs, what you inferring😏

 

And the tree looks fine, just a few dead branches to take out if you feel so inclined.
