Dying new Shauting Maple
I have a brand new shauting maple. Just planted it in my small-medium backyard about 2-3 months ago (April-May). It was doing GREAT, we had a huge storm blow through, and rain for at least a month straight. Now almost all the leaves top to mid tree have fallen off, the rest of them are dying. The tree trunk look fine. Could this be due to an insect infestation (havent seen anything abnormal)but I do have a ton of weird long black worm like bodies with a split end (cant tell head from back), doodle bugs, and some ants(not bad) crawling all over my backyard and outside of house. (normal stuff). What can I do? Please help me try and save my new little maple tree.
