nope your that.:) idiotBonersoup is a drooling idiot.
On warm days, the outer bark of a tree can open up little pores, exposing the inner green living and sap carrying pith underneath it. While the label on Roundup, and the generic cheaper brands say it is OK to use it around ornamental plants under normal circumstances and with careful application, sometimes it isn't. The trees were already stressed from drowning in acid rain last year after the tsunami fallout and then drought this year. The addition of roundup or similar chemicals could finish them off.
The other thing is that roundup is a gardener's favorite, but the other generic brands are identical and so much cheaper that they are probably using a different brand, at least. That makes me wonder if they are even using that type of herbicide. Trees are real susceptible to broadleaf herbicides. Woody vines that grow up the sides of trees won't die with a regular application of roundup. They have to have a direct application applied to a cut area, and this has to be done repeatedly to work. Someone may have gotten frustrated with the process and mixed a real potent batch or gone to a more harmful but more effective mix.
The last thing you have to look at is pest infestation. There is the EAB issue and that has killed off tons of ash trees, and the dutch elm disease has killed off most of the elms in the U.S. There may be a similar sort of thing affecting these trees and just starting there.

Typical Highland threaders... My Neapoliton Mastiff is tree killer. When he puts up his leg, look out. Like a fireman putting out a fire. Yep, more acid than most herbicide's. Guess he needs to get home back across the border.
