Expert Response

Extension Master Gardeners volunteer to educate the public on many things plant and insect based. We do not, however consult directly at homes. I would recommend contacting a local tree care company and ask that an arborist come to evaluate the tree. They will be able to give direction on diagnosis and next steps for care or removal.
