Q.why are my trees not producing leaves?
One tree, with maple like leaves that turn red in autumn, has only produced leaves on its bottom branches. A nearby similar tree, which has yellow leaves in autumn, has no leaves at all except a few shrivelled looking leaves. Two nearby trees do not have leaves yet. A holly tree nearby died a couple of years ago.
