Newly planted tree problems

I planted two flowering bare root trees in March. I live in San Antonio Texas. After we planted, my husband put a nitrogen spike by each tree. Right after trees started getting leaves, they would droop, turn brown and eventually drop off. Don't know if I should prune them now, or just wait till August? One is an Eastern Redbud and one is a Kwanzan Flowering Cherry. Did a good job planting, amending soil and watering. Have planted many trees before, but in Washington state. Help!

Vinca minor problem

Is there a spray that I can use to kill close to a quarter acre of vinca minor without killing the natural wild grass interspersed? And will it kill it permanent or will this be a constant fight?

Baby Spiders & Tube Cocoons

Hello, I found these spiders on one of our outdoor chairs. These seems to be baby spiders but I am not sure they were newborns that came from the vertebrae-shaped cocoons shown in the image or not. I noticed there were 7 spiders and 7 small “tubes” lined up (except 1 that is detached). I tried to search it but was not able to find anything even close to that. Does anyone know what kind of spiders are these and whether they came from these tubes? Appreciate any help!
