So in your opinion, a second option is warranted?

Not necessary to ask for 2nd option yet because you have not gotten to the bottom of what's causing the tree-in-bud. In other words, you have not gotten first opinion yet! Definitely see the pulmonologist for a workup. He/she will render an opinion/diagnosis. What @sueinmn suggested is standard workup -- CT scan, sputum test, spirometry aka pulmonary function tests. Good luck with everything. There are lots of people here who have been through what you going through. When/if you have questions come back and all will help you!
