My Trees Are Dead, Debarking, And/or Dying

I have noticed as I walk around the neighborhoods that a lot of trees are losing their leaves in the beginning of summer. Whole limbs and branches appear skeletal, usually at the top.

On My parent's property, one tree grew tiny leaves that seemed to go still born in April and now they are bare and I have sheets of bark falling off of it.

I live in South Jersey directly across from Philly. I believe that the trees are either oaks or maples and are old, maybe 50 years plus each. With all the storms I cannot get a tree guy or an arborist out here for at least a week. Can anyone give me a verdict? I heard Maple Rot/Wilting, somne beetle, etc....

If they are Sugar Maples, they are constantly dropping branches and looking wilted. Doesn't appear that they are well adapted to this area IMO.

Do you think that beetles are killing your trees? Are they ash trees?
