Answer: Maple Tree Decline is an actual condition and is just what it says -- a long slow decline and eventual death of the tree. There are however a number of foliar and die back problems with similar symptoms and unfortunately it is impossible to make a long distance diagnosis. In any case, you are undoubtedly aware that dead branches can create a potentially dangerous situation. You might wish to consult with a professional arborist on site or with your County Extension (454-0900) for a definite identification of the problem and suggested remedies, if any.
