I have a coral maple tree, about 3 weeks ago the leaves on one side started turning brown then the hole tree turned brown and lost all its leaves. I have read that it will regrow it’s leaves, in the fall I’ll need to spray it with a fungus spray after the new leaves fall off and then in the spring before new leaves grow. The tree is 1 year old. Is this true or have I lost the tree?
Will liriope spicata choke out my knockout roses? If so, how can I remove it without damaging the rose bush?

My BP tree is turning red leaves in the spring, some of the leaves turned a little green in April, but in June the leaves are all red and the tips of some of the branches and black and shriveled up. There is also black spots all over the leaves. What could this be? Is it dying?

Hey, I've a large mud dauber nest about the size of my hand. I need to move it to another location. I've never seen a nest of this species. Is there a good way to move the nest without destroying it and the developing mud daubers. The female just finished the nest so I thought I'd give the bugs time to develop but not sure how to move it. thanks.

We live outside Winston Salem, NC and have a good growing season. We are starting a small orchard and bought two pear trees, one Barlett and one Moonglow. The Moonglow has been planted two months but has no leaves at all as of May 13, 2017. The other pear tree has beautiful leaves. When I break off a twig the inside is green but the outside bark is light brown. Why would the tree have no leaves at this date? Thank so much for your help.
I have three autumn twist azaleas planted side by side. The leaves on the problem plants on both sides of the middle plant have turn brown and curled. One has all brown and curled leaves, but the other has both brown curled as well as all green leaves. I scratched the stems a little, and they are still very green. But the middle plants leaves are still full green and robust. Have included pictures of the three in planting order. The one in the middle appears to be more green than the ones on each opposite end.
