Is there anything I can do! Cedar Tree

What is wrong with my tree? Can I save it? What do I need to do to help it or should I cut it down. So that it will not spread to the other trees.

mystery bamboo

last year I fertilized some trees and directed some water runoff down a bank.
the bamboo that has been there has never spread before. (15 years) there has been some new growth but never spreading. recently I have noticed a lot of growth and bigger bamboo. I dug some up and from the root system it is a runner.
is it possible to have a runner be dormant due to lack of water? and what I did just got it all excited to grow? thanks for any advice

Blueberries and apples

I bought property with 8 mature blueberry bushes (trees) and 8 apple trees. They had been ignored. I trimmed and fertilized them but they all have mostly stopped producing fruit. The leaves on the apples are full of holes and dropping at the time the fruit usually drops. Can they be saved? Neem oil seemed to make the apple trees worse.
