Azalea leaves

We have a azalea hedge in our yard and have been noticing that towards the end of the summer and now the fall, most of the leaves are turning a brownish color with black spots on them. Is this a disease or normal? We do use the holly tone some on the bush but not very much and do mulch it but otherwise, we do not do much to it. I have attached pictures. Thanks so much!

Needles on fir tree turning brown

I have a 20 year old fir tree on which the needles are turning brown on the east facing side of the tree. This is happening mostly on the bottom third, but looks like it may be moving up the tree.

Wildlife in trees

We have a tree in our yard with many dying branches. My husband has arranged for a Tree Service to come and trim the tree as he is afraid the dead branches will fall and cause damage on the house or powerlines. My concern is that there is a squirrels nest inside the tree In one of the dead areas (I see squirrels coming in and out of it all the time so that is what I assume ) and also I have seen birds flying in and out of one of the higher dead hollow branches. I do not want to harm wildlife. What can be done to protect and save these beautiful creatures if the tree is being trimmed and cut back? Thank you!

Did an animal eat our small maple tree?

Our small maple tree, perhaps 5-6 years old and about 3 feet tall, is broken. The branches have been broken off the small trunk, and the bark appears to have been chewed off the trunk. Is it possible that an animal could have done this?
