fungus on fallen branch

I found this fungus (photos) on a dead wind-fallen branch. I'm not familiar with it. There seem to be other dead branches high in the tree. Is this fungus invasive/dangerous to the trees or any indication of a problem?

How to select the right tree?

I want to plant a smaller tree in a sunny spot in my front yard, along my driveway, but several feet away. I had a small crab apple tree there before but thousands of apples smashed on my driveway and rolled into the street. I had to have it cut down finally. Please help me with ideas for a small tree or two.. Not a fruit tree. Thanks. Linda

powdery mildew

Center glow ninebark is 6 years old and last year early fall I started having an issue and used the product bachmans recommended and cut back all diseased branches and thinned out the plant. It is about 7 feet tall. This spring the powdery mildew is very bad. I have also used a systemic solution this spring. I cut the bush way back or what?

Everygreens died

I had 7 evergreens planted 2 years ago and 5 have died. I don't want to replant again until I know why my plantings aren't thriving in my small off the road area in front of my house. Someone told me it may be from road salt. They get enough sun. The area in question is lower than the road running along it plus there are other mature evergreens there. Any suggestions?

Rhubarb transplanting

I was wondering if we can transplant rhubarb only in spring? Or can it be moved in early fall also- like August or September? And if transplanted in fall can it be used the next spring or do we wait a full season before harvesting?

tree root trimming

We are digging back a dirt bank by our wood shed in order to build a retaining wall. We found a root from a pine tree and are unsure if we can cut any part of it without damaging the tree. The tree is 17 inches in diameter, is about 40 t0 50 feet tall, and is 7 ft. from the root in question. The root is about 4-41/2 inches in diameter and appears to have some bark on it. In addition, this root is an offshoot of another root running 90 degrees to the root in question. We have already cut the smaller tendril of roots coming from the root in question. My question is will it harm the tree to trim the root in question back 2 to 2.5 feet? I hope the photos will clarify my concern. This tree is one of two on the hillside. Thank You

What is wrong with my tree?

First question is what kind of tree is this, and second question can anyone tell me what's going on with it?

It started out green and growing really fast, so I pruned a few branches, and now the leaves are turning maroon from the inside of the tree and working outward. They are also wilting.
