We had our 85 year old beautiful ash tree treated for ash bore the end of July. The method used was drilling into the trunk at ground level and filling with chemicals. A month ago leaves began dropping and now some of the leaves look droopy. We have not noticed other ask trees doing the same. Is this normal after treatment or do we have a problem and what to do about it? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

It may be that the wounds created by your treatment allowed a different pathogen a entry point. Check this link if you need someone to take a look.
