Does MSU Extension Service have an arborist on staff?
I have a Silver Maple and Serviceberry Tree on different parts of my property that are showing signs of distress. Rather than simply pruning out the dead sections and branches which have the leaves turning earlier than the rest of the tree, I'm interested in determination what is causing this. Does MSU Extension have an arborist on staff who could come to my property and help to diagnose the issue(s)?

Hello MSU does not have an arborist on staff. However, you can go to the website of the I SA, the international society of arboriculture, treesaregood.com and find a list of arborists in your area who you can consult.
