Is this a wolf spider

Is this a wolf spider, I can't tell, I've seen a few of them around the house in window corners, but I just want to be sure, I know the pictures aren't clear, but that's the best I can get, also I think a saw a brown recluse in a window corner as well, as long as I don't bother it, it won't bother me, right? And do they leave there webs at all?

My river birch is not producing leaves

I love my tree and the first 3 year it was full of big and fluffy looking and the last 2 years it has not been producing any leaves st all and if it does they are miniature little leaves with little red lines on the outside of them.
The only thing we can think of is it has root rot?
The soil is always wet back there in that area of the yard
We moved the irrigation system 4 feet passed the tree just for that reason..
Maybe you could help.
Here are some pictures and this is the size of the leaves now. They do not get any bigger like they use to. Any advice because I do not nit want to lose her!!!
