What is up with my maples?
I have a couple of maple trees in my back yard and the one looks like it is really dying. It started last year to have some branches at the top without leaves but this year it looks worse. And another tree about 20 feet away is starting to look the same way. The leaves appear to look normal, no spots or anything like that, however they do look small. There also appears to be a green type of moss or something all over it (see picture). I have uploaded some pictures that hopefully will help see http://www.flickr.com/photos/85269369@N00/sets/72157621536084907/. Thank you in advance. Jim
