Yellowing baby pines

We had several baby pine trees in 1 gallon buckets that we transplanted this fall and they turned a yellowish color very soon after we planted them. I got them from Missouri conservation and they are native pine trees to our state. I want to say they are pineous conifers possibly. They grew great during the summer in the containers and looked very lush and green for fall trans-planting. Several that we planted in the ground in the spring of this year turned brown and died due to heat which is not that uncommon when growing Pines in Missouri.

What is this beetle?

I found these beetles in a new vegetable garden that had previously been a fescue field. They are in the soil and do not seem to like light. Are they good, bad, or neutral?

Small limbs falling

My pecan tree is about 25 years old. It had a large wound on the trunk 10 years ago which has healed very well. This year it has no nuts on it and is losing small branches,the leaves turn brown and cluster of leaves fall off. This has been happening since the end of September. Is this a bug problem or something else

Too much rain

I planted 3 New cherry trees 3 to 4 weeks ago. I live in the very most south west corner of Missouri, we have had rain about five days a week since then. The leaves are turning yellow and dropping like flies, can I take them back up and wait until this rain stops. Or any other suggestions?
