    RE: 11 ft pine tree

    You could try watering it a bit, if there's no water shortage. Also, since Ohio hasn't been as dry this year as previous years, there's a possibility that you could have an infestation of something, like a bark-beetle. Look for oozing sores, if that's the case, you may have to call someone local to find out what's affecting pine trees. Perhaps your local cooperative extension service. The reason I suggest that you might have a bug is because bark doesn't usually turn, it's normally the needles.

    Poor pine tree,
    your pine tree does sound like it's in stress alright. Rush color needles
    on the lower branches could be engraver beetles(bores), or sound kind of
    soil borne disease traveling upward. i would say you should check bark and or needles for entry wounds(small holes in bark) or small holes in needles. It couldn't hurt to deep root water( run hose at low rate) around base of tree. 20 to 30 gals. should help. write back after you check bark and needles. (hint: small holes with sap or frass in bark could mean bore
    infestation)

    good luck

    RE: 11 ft pine tree

    As I read this post, the needles are drooping but not necessarily turning color, correct? What species of pine?

    Needle droop commonly occurs when a pine is under water stress, but usually isn't serious. Occasionally many or most of the needles in the new growth may die, but if the tree is otherwise healthy, the buds will be unaffected and the tree will recover and continue as usual the following spring. However, as it's been unusually hot in your area, some watering may be called for.

    I suspect that the rusty color on the lower bark may be the normal coloration of the mature bark of the species of pine you have. It will show up earliest on the lower portion of the stem. A picture might change my mind.
