Hi folks,
This pine tree came with our house a couple years back. I'm wondering if it's healthy enough to save. Some of the branches droopy. I'd just like suggestions on whether it's savable and what I can do to help it thrive.  Thank you.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it.

It looks healthy to me as well, but I think you mean it is a Spruce and not a Pine.

I believe it is also a Norway Spruce that naturally have droopy boughs. Your tree is perfectly healthy...
