Connectors can be dried and cleaned. But coax... if water has gotten in, needs to be replaced, that's the only reliable fix.

Are the trees evergreens (Douglas fir, Cedar or Hemlock for ex.) or are they a species that's now have sap running and leaves about to 'pop'? Have the trees grown significantly in the two years since you installed the antenna?

If they're evergreen and have not grown or changed much, it's not too likely they're to blame. A fast growing stand of alder, birch, etc. on the other hand is going to be high on the list of suspects when trying to explain the recent changes to reception.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
