I have a series of sugar maple trees planted in a row at the south end of our lot. Te trees are approx. 6-7 years old. Last year one tree blew over in a wind storm. Upon inspection the trunk below the surface appeared to be weakened by something, its diameter was smaller than the rest of the tree.

This year the tree that was next to it never got any leaves and is dead. Now I noticed while cutting the grass that the tree next to the dead one has leaves that are curled on the edges and have dried up and you can crush them with your fingers.

There is a mulch around each tree and they are set into soil that is quite sandy.

Is there anything you would suggest to help this tree and keep the other ones from dying?


thank you


Stan
