I just sprayed fish emulsion and nitrogen on the trees 3 days ago, but the bare limbs have been going on for some time now. Thanks for any help I can get.

I need a little more information - there are so many reasons for twig dieback that I would like to try to narrow this down a little.

Have you noticed any rosettes or little leaves like this:

Have you noticed any amber colored gumming like this:

Or anything else unusual? What percentage of the tree is impacted thus far?
