zucchini squash, or lack thereof

Last year and this, my zucchini plants seem to only be producing male flowers. Why? Also, I don't see a lot of evidence of stink bugs on my tomatoes, but some of them have a mottled appearance. Why?

male & female mesquite trees

A friend told me that there were male and female mesquite trees. She contended that the female mesquites were the ones with blooms and the trees that didn't have blooms were the male species. Can this be true? If so, then how do the blooms get fertilized allowing beans to be formed? Is it a case of the trees with blooms have both male and female blooms? If that's it, then, are the trees that don't produce blooms and beans 'sterile'?

We live in a condo in Hunt Valley. Our courtyard has several different kinds of trees, three of which are Sweet Gums. During yesterday's rain, two of the Sweet Gum trees began dropping leaves very quickly. They were falling like snowflakes. The trees are three stories high, about 9 years old, and have a lot of new growth on them. They looked perfectly healthy until yesterday. What could possibly cause them to lose leaves?

Norfolk Pine Branch Tips Curling Downward

Lately some of my branches have started curling downward and appear to be dryer and stiffer than those that extend outward. I water my NP every 8 days and dispose of the excess water after 15-20 minutes. I spray the branches generously with water (spray bottle) every night.

Only a couple of small pieces of the branches have broken off in the last few months. One branch is starting to turn turning brown, and several seem to be showing signs of drying.

What is the probable problem??

Thanks much.

Juniper tree browning

We live in SE Aurora and our three juniper trees in the back yard have turned brown (I believe due to the late freeze we had). Several others in our area have met the same fate. The trees show some new growth on the tips and two have some green at the base (see photos). Can I salvage them since they show new growth? They look horrible, but I don't want to take them out if they will come back next year.
