I live near Denver, CO. I have lived in my house for 45 years. ALL of my trees and bushes are dying. I had two tree companies tell me nothing is wrong with my trees, but they have almost completely de-foliated and dropped branches. All my trees and bushes are 45 years old. I have one red maple tree that is only ten years old, and it too is dying. My large mungo pine has dropped 95% of its needles. The trunk looks fine and there is no sign of insects. I had a company spray for insects and deep feed it anyway, but it didn't help. My silver maple is dying back and drops large branches occasionally and small branches daily. My juniper bushes are turning yellow and leaning over. My lilac bushes, golden elder bushes, Italian prune plum tree, and choke cherry bushes have tiny spots on the leaves that I think may be a fungus. This has been going on for three years, and I don't think they will last another year. What could be causing so many different types of bushes and trees to die? Is there anything I can do? I have some pictures on my computer, but I don't know how to upload a picture. Please e-mail me your answer because after I clicked on "make it public", I realized that I don't know where to go to see a public answer. Thank you.
