Top of 3 30' to 40' long needled pines dying out (rust orange color)

I do not know the name of the tree. I bought them at Home depot 15 years ago.
5 needle clumps, 2" to 5" long they are like a Soft Brush.
Branches extend from the trunk like spokes of a wheel, in tiers, rather than sporadically or randomly .
Branches are very horizontal not upward angled.
A fairly smooth Whitish grey trunk.
Lower branches seem very healthy, but the top 3 1/2 feet are dead. The near by:Blue spruce and scotch pine, Ponderosa pine and Austrian Pine all look very healthy.

Can you help me?

Thanks, Timothy White

Cucumber issue

Any chance you can tell me what is happening to this cucumber plant. Not sure if a virus or the new soil mix we used is deficient in iron? Thanks.

Marigold New Foliage Curling & Deformed

Hello: I planted some marigolds from seed this year. Almost all of the seeds I planted germinated and I divided them into separate pots. Suddenly some of the new foliage on the plants has started to curl and become deformed. I’ve never run into this before. Can you help?

Transplanting succulents

I recieved a pot of succulents for my birthday last month. Can I transplant them outside and when should I do it. I know the hen and chicks will be ok, but don't know about the others.

Planting squash near each other

If I plant c pepo near c. Maxima, or c moschata-, will they cross and make frankensquash? How far apart must I plant different varieties of c pepo? Is it only the seeds that will make weird offspring next year, or will this year's produce be weird too?

Ex, tromboncino, which I hear is c moschata-, by a patty pan. Or red kuri w a spaghetti sq, both sprawling, but not the same species..

Shade tree for clay soil

I live in Berthoud in a new housing development and want to plant a shade tree in my backyard. The soil is all clay. What is a good choice? Would prefer a tree whose roots grow down and not at surface. We plan on retiring here so will be here for a while and want to balance rate of growth, but we don't want to wait 15 years to benefit from it. We've looked at the info that has been put out, but it is almost too many choices. I think the driver is the soil. We want it to thrive.
