That makes me sad. This is my favorite tree. So I should water the tree with a hydrogen peroxide/ water mixture? What does this do for the tree?These sound like the symptoms of an already dead pine, particularly the dull colored part. Lets hope it is not so as it was a beauty.
Issues with the unexposed roots is my guess. Could have been damaged during winter. May have anoxia (too wet and/or poor draining substrate) which can be exaggerated by root rot (root drench with a solution of 1/4 cup 3% hydrogen peroxide and enough water to make a quart may help).
A bit more background (last year, say) might help for understanding and dealing with this sad state.

If that is the case then it should be repotted. The time of year is ok. Wether it is safe or not depends on the root condition. The top is usually a reflection of the health of the bottom.
So, are you saying that the soil isn’t draining well?
Do just one side (of the trunk).
Again, if you are doing emergency surgery, what is “safe” doesn’t matter!
Stating general guidelines does not rule out specific advice to do otherwise in a particular situation. If you follow your line of reasoning you would just continue the path that brought you to this point. Doing the same thing but expecting a different result. So the choice is leave the tree in conditions that will kill it or attempt to improve the conditions before it is too late.
