Sap oozing from my cherry tree.

I have a yellowish sap oozing from my cherry tree. I notice a big branch has died. What is it? Should I destroy the tree? Will my Fuji Apple tree get this disease?

Mites

I think i have red spider mites, I have junipers near my house with cobwebs and i see tiny red spots on my sheets on a bed near a window. The spots move! It seems very late to me to have spider mites but the weather has been very unusual. My concerns are:
Are they harmful in any way to humans?
How do i rid the house of the critters?

Dwarf Alberta Spruce issues

We planted this Dwarf Alberta Spruce two years ago in October 2017.

The south/east side of the tree looks great but the north/west is increasingly blotchy/dead.

Any idea if this can be reversed or at least arrested?

Native Colorado plants for containers

I am a master gardener with Cornell cooperative extension in schenectady county New York. My son lives in Colorado Springs. I’d like a list if native plants that might do well in a container to attract pollinators. He lives in a townhouse and a container garden would be a great way to plant the gardening seed in him.

Amaryllis in dormancy

I received some bulbs last October. It was planted and bloomed. For the last 6 months (or more), the green blades have been cared for. Only recently, the green became limp. I've dug it up and cleaned it.
I've always assumed it needs some dormancy before starting again. My plan was to store it in a burlap bag in Peat.

Now, I've read an article in HortMag that says I should replant in a shallow dish and keep moist; transplant it at some point.
So, which makes more sense? If burlap/peat storage is on track, how long to store before I replant?
