How pine trees recover from drought

I've been watering and hoping and hoping and watering ... trying to save this pine tree in my front yard. In March, I could see the new growth! And there are little pine cones all over its branches. The live oak at the right has been doing fine, but the pines have struggled. This one will make it, I think.

From another angle ...

The two pine trees in the side yard are okay ... one is more okay than the other! But both have lots of new growth on them! Hooray!!
