Is this tree dying?

Asked August 25, 2017, 4:40 PM EDT

I am buying a house and we thought this tree needs to be pruned up. But I feel like it's dying anyway. The landowners will come to remove two other trees and maybe they should do this one too if it can't be save? It's blocking some of my garden light.
