I would definitely rule out a disease, fungus or insect population that is not supposed to be there as it could spread. Where I am both twin cities have great arborists that have all kinds of counsel and advice available. The last thing they want to do is take out a tree but this is an urban forest environment. Try your nearest university also. Your state forestry folks could also be surprisingly helpful in at least figuring out what is going on.

If those are maples,,they are noted for going hollow inside and 'becoming' dangerous to people walking underneath or storm damage. OR shedding huge limbs.
