A: I recommend you get and onsite inspection from a certified arborist, a trained tree doctor. I think your tree has scale, which is very difficult to treat -timing is important. Professionals use products not available to homeowners as well as high pressure sprays that provide better coverage. In addition, your tree may have other issues that have weakened the tree.
