pine trees turning brown

Pine trees are new to me, since I'm originally from coastal LA. My pines are turning brown in spots and dropping needles. I am guessing this is due to lack of rain, so I am wondering if this occurs during dry times.

Look up and down the trunk of the pines. If you see spots with sap coming out, sort of like someone stuck chewing gum on the trunk, if so, you may have pine beetles. Also look for saw dust on the bark and around the trunks.
This time of year, squerriels will be up in the pines cutting the pine cones, so dont confuse the mess under the tree from the squerriels feeding.

i don't see any sap nor sawdust. i think it is the drought.

RE: pine trees turning brown

My pines are shedding also but I dont have any brown spots. Anyway I hope its not beatles. Ive had to cut down four pines in the last couple years because of them.
