Spots on elderberry and meadow rue

I have spots on leaves on several plants that I haven’t seen in the past- not sure if they are related but they have somewhat similar appearance . I attached pic of black lace elderberry, lemon lace elderberry, meadow rue.

spots on basil and marigold leaves

Hello! Wondering what this is and if the basil leaves are still edible. (not sure if the same thing is causing the spots on the basil and marigold leaves, but they look similar)

Coral bark maple and solar-powered spot

My coral bark maple is a few years old, not new. A couple of years ago I took down another tree that had been shading it and it has done beautifully. The bark is redder and the leaves have more color. (It is planted at the NE corner of the house.) Last week I installed a solar-power, 40-lumen spot. I noticed today that the leaves in the area where the spot shone are brown, dry, and curled up. Is it possible that the spot light damaged those leaves? I didn't see anything on the side where the second spot was shining. I immediately removed the spots to avoid any further damage if they are the cause. Thanks.

River birch

My river birch (approximately 5 yrs old) has 1/2 the leaves it has had in the past. The leaves seem smaller but healthy. There are no bug marks or yellowing. There is just significantly less foliage per branch. Is this a cycle river birch experience? Do I need to fertilizer it? Please advise. Kari

Why would this Aspen have such huge holes in it?

Aspen on edge of town that was planted about 10 years ago is really declining. It does have good drainage and has not been around spray. It does have a lot of wildlife around. Why does it have huge holes in it and why are leaves turning brown?
