What Plant Is This?

To whom it may concern,

This plant has sprouted at the edge of a driveway, it was allowed to live due to curiosity. I am unable to identify it and am asking for assistance. The plant sprouted in the spring and has quickly grown. There are many birds in the area due to a bird feeder in the yard so the origin of the seed is unknown.

Thank you for your time,

trees for Calhoun County

we have purchased land in Seadrift. about 3 blocks from the bay. the ground is mostly clay. right now there is a Ash and a Tallow tree on the property. we are building a home so we want some shade trees, fast growing but durable and can tolerate high winds (just in case) I would prefer Non-deciduous trees. I have been told that there is a Cyprus tree that might work for us. we do plan to put in a few citrus trees however we really want some shade for our yard. Please route this email to the person in your offices that might be able to make some suggestions.

Sincerely, Lin Andis

Is my Pine still alive?

I have a large pine tree that has very badly browned and is shedding bark along with needles etc. I'm not sure the cause or if it's worth saving? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. I've included pictures. Thank you!

Oak tree without leaves

This year one of our oak trees got buds but never got any leaves. I guess I assume it died but why would this happen? In the late fall of 2014 we had it trimmed but didn't notice any issues in 2015. It seemed healthy last summer/fall. It kept its leaves really late last fall. Not many branches have fallen this summer. I attached a picture of one from this week.

Japanese beetles on my elm tree

About half of the leaves of my birch tree have been destroyed by what appears to be Japanese beetles. The leaves are left with just their skeletons and many are falling to the ground. Can these pests kill the tree? I don't like using pesticides and would prefer to just leave the tree alone but I am wondering if this situation will cause more than damage just this summer. The tree is older but has otherwise been healthy.

which apple?

Last winter, rabbits peeled the bark from one of our young apple trees. We thought the tree was dead, but over the summer, many shoots have come up from the root of this tree. These shoots are about 3' high now.. Questions: 1. How do we choose which shoot (s) to keep to grow into another tree? 2. When is the best time to cut back the shoots we do not need - now? later this fall? Next spring? 3. Should we cut back the old, dead tree, which is about 5' tall?
