Tree damage (trimmer)

I have a new weekly mowing customer. She wanted an estimate to remove 2 of these pictured trees. They were damagede by her previous LCO with the trimmer. I have a feeling none of them are salvageable. Im not a tree expert, yet. Any opinions from tree gurus? Couldnt figure how to add pics to an album and share the album link. sorry! Thanks

They all seam to be loose in the ground too. I imagine from the damage and weak roots or maybe planted too shallow?

looks like some have lichens, which is not harmful at all, thats the greyish fungus/algea looking growths on the bark
do any of them have oozing cankers? id say the pic with the dying branches is blight and the affected branches should be removed,, unless its all over the tree, then remove tree.
Are they fruit trees?

Anthracnose, theyll be dead shortly
if you see round holes in the bark, it may have borers
too bad, flowering dogwoods are a really nice tree

Thanks. Looked it up and looks exactly they same. Would damage from trimmer basically make the tree more susceptible to the disease?

The most damge to trees from trimmers is girdling. Either wrap the base, install a mulch ring or learn a little trimmer discipline. Throttle back and easily pull the grass away. If the bark is more than 50% gone around the base the will die. Gly and pre ems are usually not a good idea and damage the tree as well. I personally prefer selling ring beds which add value and interest to the landscape.
