Ann Tulip Magnolia Tree Not Looking Very Healthy

When I first started planting plants, I had no idea what I was doing.  I didn’t understand the difference between alkali and acidic soil, which plants needed tons of direct sunlight versus those that prefer shade, even the difference between perennials and annuals.  It was frustrating watching plants, expensive plants at that, slowly shrivel up and die.  Eventually, though, I started to figure it out.  I’ve been on a bit of a positive streak lately, but now I’m running into issues.

I’m sure these are obvious to those who’ve been around plants for a while, but I’m baffled when it comes to these brown spots on the Ann Tulip Magnolia tree.  The leaves are probably being eaten by caterpillars, but the limpness, the spots and raggedy look is beyond me.  Probably a fungicide, something a bottle of chemicals could fix or at least slow down, but I was hoping the tree would fight through it without me having to drug up the tree.
