The tree looks more like a spruce than a pine but hard to tell from this vantage point. Spruce decline has been rampant in Michigan and you can read more here:

The leaf drop appears serious however and the tree needs to be looked at by a professional, namely a Certified Arborist, one who specializes in everything woody. Find one or more Certified Arborists n you zip code at
Click on the Find an Arborist tab. Arborist evaluations are not expensive and where you can learn exactly what is going on in your tree.

Good luck!
