Can this tree be saved

Asked May 19, 2015, 9:01 PM EDT

This tree is looking like it is trying to survive from something. Is that right? I would like to know if it is dying and if not what can be done. Of course I want to know what kind of tree.

Looks like a hackberry, a native tree.

Judging by the photos, it looks like it cannot be be saved, but you need to contact a tree service company which has a certified arborist on staff who can visit and give you a definitive answer. You'll want an arborist certified by the International Society of Arboriculture. To find one and the tree service company they work for, go to
