Question: My Red Maples are drying up at the top branches, we trimmed them recently, but I do not know what else to do for them. They are less then 5 years old, is there something you can recommed to help them?

Answer: Gloria,

Such symptoms usually indicates something in the roots such as a lack of soil moisture, or perhaps even soggy soil which is deadly to roots if it lasts very long. Try to keep the trees well watered but not soggy wet. Don't apply herbicide or weed and feed fertilizer around the trees.
