Sugar Maple losing leaves

My sugar maple is about 20 years old and has for the last 2to 3 years has been dropping leaves in the summer. It is like it's early fall and the leaves turn yellow...dry up and fall off. It also looks like there are still seeds on the tree. The "helicopter" dried up but now looks like the seed pod is green and still on the tree. I have attached pictures.

Magnolia white flower tree for Minneapolis/ strange growth on some branches

My Magnolia is only 1 1/2 years old. Last year it had a fungus & all the leaves turned brown & YELLOW IN Sept & October & all the leaves fell off. So I only ended up with 7 flowers in the spring.

Deformed rose leaves, chemical or virus?

I have 4-5 different rose bushes in a berm that are not right...two almost dead, and others beginning to have this leaf damage on different canes.
three photos rose bush one, has severely little new cane growth, severely distorted leaves, and one rose! Rose bush 2, no new cane growth, very damaged leaves in clusters, Rose bush 3, a climber, with very damaged wisps of leaves at the bottom and middle, dwarfed and thinner leaves, and then normal leaves. a person at O'Tooles said he thought it was chemical damage. Another says Rose Rosette.

Rodents raiding vegetable garden

We are having a rodent invasion in our vegetable garden, critters are literally lopping off plant starts. Our neighbor speculates that they are "mountain beavers" (Aplodontia rufa). Is there an effect control for this problem. There are holes in the ground all over the garden. I'm questioning whether it is worth round three of planting--or are we just feeding rodents?

Our professional pest control has placed rodent traps on our property (and in the garden), but we believe the traps are baited for Norway rats.

Colorado Spruce top dying and stripped?

Can you tell from these photos what the likely culprit is and what we need to do or look for? This happened very quickly on an otherwise healthy 10' tree. Do we have to top the tree and train a new leader then? Would love any thoughts!

Wasp?

This wasp is new to our landscape. We think it might be a Cicada killer. There are also what look like sand/ mud nests where they are " hanging out." Can you ID for us? Thanks!

bats

We have an ever-growing bat colony that lives (as best we can tell) under the tiles in our roof and tucked into every available nook and cranny between the house and roof line. We also suspect that they are in parts of the attic. What can we do to encourage them to move on? Our main complaint is the bat guano that is getting on the deck, windows, etc. We love bats and certainly do not want to hurt them, but the guano is pretty gross. Also, what started out as a cute little group of bats now numbers in the many hundreds (if not thousand). Thanks for any ideas!

Pruning apple trees now

We have several small apple trees - all about 15 years old. They are bearing fruit this year but it is all infected despite our regular Neem treatments. I would like to simply prune the trees now, removing all fruit and extraneous limbs (and hopefully the disease vectors), and start over again next year. Will this harm my trees in any way? Any other thoughts?

Noxious weeds

I live by a Black Hawk Co. Park owned by City of Waterloo. The field next to my home is full of Canadian Thistle and has been getting worse over the years. It would be nice if the City would mow this but they won't. The thistle is in my yard and over the 30+ years of living here they have not maintained it other than letting what was a pheasant cover now fill with thistle and small trees. We were told that they would burn it to keep it for pheasant. Never done. The thistle is also a problem for the neighbor across the street who farms for Farmer's Market. Is there anything that can be done? The location is the 1100 blk of Martin Rd. Waterloo, IA.

Little bugs on the basswood trees?

We own a resort in Orr, MN and our grounds have many basswood trees. We recently noticed tiny little bugs on the leaves. We have never seen bugs like this before. They are eating the leaves. We don't know if this is related, but all around the trees on the ground is extremely sticky. We hope you can tell us what these bugs are, why they are showing up, and how we can get rid of them. Thank you!

Big Branches Falling From Walnut Tree

I have a walnut tree about 60 feet tall. This summer, big branches from high atop the tree are breaking off and falling to the ground. These branches could hurt someone badly. We have had little rain and no storms or wind. These branches are loaded with walnuts. What is causing this to happen? It has happened three times within 10 days. I hate this, as it's a beautiful tree and has always looked healthy.

Pool Build and Tree

Hi, my wife and I are considering putting a pool in our back yard. Due to wetland/property setbacks, we are left with only one spot that would not encroach on these and that is next to a very large oak tree. I do not want to harm this tree, so my question is how close to this tree can we get without doing so? Attached are a few pictures to get an idea of this location. My guess is that there will be about 10-15 feet between the tree trunk and the pool.
