How and when to prune, and how to protect from deer: Moonrise Maple

This photo was taken today of our Moonrise Maple planted early July at about 66", doing very well and really leafing out. It replaces a 60" multi-stem A. Truncatum we planted in 2017, that was completely eaten by deer in our neighborhood. We eventually want to prune away the lower 4-5' of this Moonrise, so that it will be a shade tree, without shocking the tree. When and how to prune, please? After losing our multi-stem A. Truncatum over the winter and replacing it with this single stem Moonrise, we have purchased 3' tall wood stakes and chicken wire with the idea of creating a fence around the tree, with about a six foot diameter. Please tell us if this is the best plan to protect against rabbits and deer, or if there is a better way to go about it. We also have a trunk cage but without pruning the lower branches, not sure how we can use it this year. If it is possible to use the cage (it's one of the large round ones with holes in it), please tell us how. Thank you very much!

Stressed pine tree

Our huge pine tree has declined in the past 2 years. It was a gorgeous, full tree and now it has a lot of spaces between branches and a lot of brown branches close to trunk. I will send photos in a separate email. They wii be from pbehrenbrinker@gmail.com. My name is Patty. Thank you!

My deck is covered with a clear, sticky substance with tiny black specks stuck to it. Likewise the deck furniture and all of the plants on the deck are also. what is it? There is a Linden tree that hangs over the deck that is covered in Japanese beetles. Could this have anything to do with it? thank you.
