Our entire street is lined with very large "town-planted" maple trees.
They are all very healthy, except for one on our neighbor's property right in the middle. Last week, it started to turn brown, and now all the leaves are dried out and falling off. There was no trauma to this tree that we know of - neither on the ground nor in the air. None of the trees has gotten any more water than any other. What do you suppose could be causing this condition on this one poor tree, and can we save it?
The tree on the right, is on our property, and is suffering a little because of the trench that was dug nearby to connect our house to the sewer system last fall. The trench was to the right of that, so it wouldn't have any impact on the middle tree's roots.
