Without seeing it, or the symptoms in question, it would be very hard to say. There are many insects and fungus that will cause the death of trees, and also many environmental issues that could have caused the death as well.

In the meantime, this article will help you to narrow down what is killing off your trees: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/sudden-tree-death-causes.htm
