hello and welcome....yer trees sound like they getting to much water to old are these trees iffin ya know?......might wanna dig down beside the tree and iffin a mole or someother critter has dug a hole near the roots that is causing water to puddle under the roots..just dig a lil hole can also use a small steel tube and bang it beside tree...remove and dig out the dirt in tube...then take some cotton rope and thread it in the tube and place back into the ground where ya just removed the dirt...check it everyday fer about a week{do not water tree during this week}...measure the water in the rope and that should clear things much or not enough water......good the way this is called the wicking measures....good luck

When I was young, the girls use to call me "Sweet Sugar Plum". But, when I got old and decrepid, my hair turned grey and I started shedding. Maybe that's what's wrong with your tree. Just old and turning color. Probably not, huh? LOL. Sorry I can't be more help........gfp

I'll second the Welcome. And I don't know diddly either. Just off the top of my head though, fungus, bugs, disease, too much water, not enough water, it's Fall. Check with your county extension agent and see what it knows.

dig, where are you from??
It is Fall there?
I think it is Spring here and in Canada.

I live in south central Wisconsin. The Fall was supposed to be a joke.
