What's wrong with my yard?

I had a 8 in round dead spot last year and this year it has expanded to a much larger area. I found a few weeks ago a sprinkler head was not working and repaired that. Last year, I reseeded the area with bermuda grass with no results; this year I've used yard is healthy and green; there are a few spots in that area that seem to be coming back. Is there more that I can do outside of having a yard company assess?

Do you know what this worm is that is in my apple tree? It is found in the new growth on the end of the branch with the leaves wrapped around it, causing the leaves to turn brown. It doesn't seem to make a cocoon, but uses the leaves wrapped around it like one. There doesn't seem to be any eating of the leaves, just the browning & damage from wrapping the leaves around the worm. Also, is this worm a pest I need to get rid of, or can I just let it be without spraying my trees?

Brown lines on organic soybean leaves

I have planted a few organic soybeans in my kitchen garden. They had been doing very well but after this latest rain several of the plants have developed very pronounced brownish (color of chewing tobacco) discoloring along the veins of some of their leaves. It is only along part of the leaf but it causes the stem to wilt. Any idea what it is and/or what can be done about it? I am using a straw bale planting method. Please be advised that I am trying to keep my garden as organic as possible. Thanks!

Dead Maple

I’m looking for reasons why one of my maples didn’t come back this spring. I have a few maples in my yard, as do the neighbors, and all look healthy besides one of mine. It’s probably 6-8 inches in diameter and maybe 40-50 feet tall. It is about 8 foot away from another maple that is 12 inches diameter and a bit taller. I did find a soft spot of bark that easily peeled away with gentle pressure. Pic included of a close up of the peeled bark. I have other pics from further back that can be shared if useful too. My main concern obviously lies with the other nearby maples. If it is/was diseased, I’d like to make sure the others are saved. I appreciate any help you have to offer.

Cedar Trees Foliage Turning Brown

Much of my cedar forest from old growth to newer trees the foliage is turning brown and dying. At close inspection a small green worm with black/reddish head is wrapped up in the dying centers. It suddenly started showing. Is this due to drought which weakened the trees then the worms are finishing, or just drought or worms only. Live in Austin Hill Country.
