Our sick Tulip Oak trees

Asked May 30, 2020, 6:23 PM EDT

Is this tree dying. Can it be saved? It has been at our home over 40 years.

Prince George's County Maryland

Honestly, we cannot tell just from photos if a tree is dying. Your photos don't show anything alarming but you need an arborist to make an onsite evaluation of your tree to determine its condition. Considering how close the tree is to your home contacting an arborist is our advice to you.
