CO2 research

I’m a MSU alumnus and part time gardener. I was wondering if the university is doing any research into trees, cover crops, or other plants regarding their relative ability to absorb CO2 and or other atmospheric pollutants with an eye toward developing practical plant life with enhanced ability to scrub the air to address climate change. If we can breed better apples why not try to address this issue through agriculture too?

Disease of maple leaves

What is this? What should we do for the trees?
This is a significant illness affecting the North and west sides of three contiguous Maple trees that are important for shade in our area. Do you know what is causing this? ...some of the leaves have turned brown and fallen. It has only been noted for 8-9 days.
Is there any treatment and what is the prognosis?
Thank you.

Maple Tree Issues

I noticed the maple trees in my yard looking like they have some type of mites or bugs and the leaves are dying. Some have a webbing to them even. I want to make sure this will not injure my tress permanently, or that my dog won't be affected by the bugs. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you. Marilyn Warmuskerken

Large tree dropping branches

We have a large tree that has been dropping branches, two during a storm and two on a perfectly fine day. We have had other trees in the area falling too that seemed fine. The first tree I spoke of is very close to two cottages on Stonylake. Is this tree sick? Maybe too much water? What might we do to help this tree out, if anything? Thank you so much for your input.
