:cry: We have cedar elms that appear healthy one week and the next, their leaves are turning brown and falling off. I lost two last year and I have two more dying now. There are beetle like bugs on them and ant-like bugs that are red with stripes. The branches are still green under the bark. These were planted 8 years ago from 12" whips and the two that died last year were 6" caliper and 12-15' tall. One that is now sick is 8" and 25' tall. The other is 1 1/2" and 8' tall. Back in the spring, there were white patches on the ground under the bigger tree. I assume some type of fungus.

Is there anything I can do at this point to save these trees?????

Implement the sick tree treatment right away. Check to make sure the drainage is okay for their root zones, they might be drowning.

The bugs aren't the cause. They're likely just doing clean-up work on what they sense to be stressed out/dying trees.

Shepherd of the Trees
It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields we know so that those who live after may have clean earth to till.
