Will my tree live?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Christmas 3 years ago, Dh brought me a little pine tree in a pot. It's done very well, growing taller than Dd. It's grown to completely cover a south window so Dh had the idea that to brighten our living room again, he could move it outside for the summer. We have a porch with eastern sun. It looked happy for a week or two, then I noticed some light green - brown tinging of the needles in several spots, including all the new top growth.

I moved it to a shady spot. A few bits turned brown and fell off, the rest is holding steady, maybe today I imagined it improved, less brown.

Can my tree recover? Is there anything more I can do besides shade, good water, and healing touch?

i think it will make it. sounds like you tried something, saw it wasn't working, and made remedies on the situation in fairly short order. i would say: no permanent harm done. now if on the other hand, you'd just left it where it wasn't thriving, and waited to see for a long time, it would probably have died.
