Can you please help me diagnose and cure my tree's disease? Three photos are attached. The leaves get spots, get yellow and fall, starting at the bottom branches and working their way up. The fruit seems to be unaffected, but does tend to drop off of the same branches that lose their leaves. In spring the plant seems healthy, I get a lot of lovely fragrant blooms. This has happened several years in a row. I can't see anything unusual at the base of the trunk. The bark seems cracked and has lichen on it, but I'm not sure if that's normal--see photo.

We removed a peony plant that had been in the same spot for 20 years. We purchased a new variety peony to plant in the same spot that the peony we removed was. We were told we had to remove the dirt until all the tubulars remaining in the soil are taken out or it won't ever grow and get established. how deep and wide would that be? Is that a true statement?

Our crabapple tree has a lot of fruit and the branches are sagging low to the ground. The deer are eating all the leaves off. I am afraid that the branches will snap. It is mid sept so I don’t think it’s the right time to prune. Please advise.

We live in Western NC (elevation 3800 ft, wooded area) and have a large snake living in the rock wall just outside our front door. He likes to sit in the sun in the driveway during the middle of the day, but occasionally leaves our yard and heads into the woods only to return to the rock wall later in the day. We have been very respectful of each other. He holds very still if we come close, and then pulls himself back into the rocks as soon as we walk by. Could you identify him please and let us know if he is venomous. If so, does he need to be re-homed?

I have over-seeded my lawn with a lower maintenance high traffic grass seed. I also have clover in my lawn and I do not mind it at all. My question is can I create a clover and grass lawn without all the broadleaf grasses and other things like crab grass? I thought I could overseed in the fall or after first frost and possibly in the spring. Would overseeding a couple times a year push out the other weeds or would I be wasting my money? Also, would I have to fertilize other times of the year or just starter fertilizer after overseeding?

We have an amazing good-sized raspberry patch which has become increasingly infested with Spotted Wing Drosophila. Wondering what organic means I might use to help control this. Would burning our patch in the fall help? How about mowing it all down and hauling the cut bushes off to be burned? What about organic sprays? Our chickens free range and help clean up berries dropped on the ground, but are they just making it worse in that they drop the now fertilized results? Any help you can give me would be so very much appreciated! Thank you in advance! Miriam firstname.lastname@example.org
