3 yard & tree issues

Asked August 16, 2017, 2:00 PM EDT

Huge American Elm. Was trimmed last fall. Has been treated a few times in the past. Not sure what was used. Best time of year for an application? How often should it be treated? Maple tree trimmed years ago and they removed a limb because it hung over the neighbor's yard. Found cavity filled w/carpenter ants. Had tree cut down last fall. When the stump is removed, best way to fill hole? Had sewer line replaced in April. Company supposed to come grade the yard and said will just seed. Is it too late in year to seed? Best time to lay sod if I want? I am learning not to trust some of the companies doing these projects and need good info from the experts.
