Abit of background, I found this tree on the road in a pot just after Christmas and felt sorry for it - I am a sucker I know that! Anyway I picked it up and planted it out in my garden. I know zero about trees and gardening, I do not even know what type of tree it is, although I think it is a Scots Pine. All I do know is that it appears to be dying from the top downwards and that it has these brown spots on the leaves that still look healthy. It is in a patch of earth not with any other trees and the trees that are in the nearby area seem perfectly healthy. I am in the UK, and the weather here is still pretty wintery - cold and rain, so I doubt it is an insect related problem? It has been very very wet here for the past 3 months, I wonder whether that something to do with it? or the earth [no idea what it is] is deficient in something it needs? I would really appreciate any advice on what I can do to help it. Many thanks.
