What type of soil is under an evergreen tree? I planted an oak hydrangea around the tree and it is dying. There are a lot of needles on the soil from the tree. Should I move the plant?

The soil under pines tends to be high in acid. But more likely, the tree is using up all the water in the area and this is what is killing the plant. This is common. It would be probably best to move it.
