The aphids are common, but not an epidemic.
I have aphid on my Beech, but don't spray, because not enough damage occurs. Beech frequently get those, and I bought that tree knowing it would have some.
Honey Locust - its common for those to get dead twigs, or even decline. Keep it thinned, and remove dead. Enjoy it while it looks reasonable, whether 2 years or 2 centuries. Only time can tell on those - they remind me of gambling. It like rolling the dice and never knowing what number you will get.
