Shore Pine Health

Hello, I recently purchased a Lot approximately 2 blocks from the beach on the bluff in Bandon. The lot is forested in shore pine mixed with some gorse. We've begun clearing the gorse out and thinning the pines. We would like to keep as many of the larger pines (12 to 15ft tall) as possible. The trees are quite old and are not able to grow much taller than they are. They have been crowded and now that we have thinned they looked somewhat stressed. Many of the needles look dead and are shedding. Is there anything I can do to give them a boost? Fertilizer? Or should I give them time to adjust? Any advice would be welcome. I don't expect them to grow taller, would just like them to grow laterally and look greener and bushier. Thank you, Corinne Barclay

Black Rot/Fire Blight on Apple Trees?

Hello, We recently acquired a small orchard and have been trying our best to manage it organically. We use Neem oil for pests throughout the growing season and during spring. We have maybe three trees with a few more serious issues and I was wondering if you could provide any advice on how best to manage them. One problem is peeling bark, down to the wood, not on the whole trunk/branches, but localized. It appears that a tiny black bug or larvae is the culprit and I have sprayed neem in the hopes it will take care of them. The second one is one specific tree which lost a limb last year due to the weight of too much fruit. We pruned this back, but after this recent snow, a foot long section of the main trunk suddenly turned black. I thought fire blight, but reading about that says it is more likely when temperatures are above 65 F and right now it's still winter. Could it be black rot canker? And, if this is the case, should we remove the tree asap, or is it something that can be managed with copper or another minimally impactful spray? If we manage the black rot, will it always be liable to spread to adjacent trees? Any help would be much appreciated.

red-headed ash borer treatment

We bought a black walnut slab of wood for our counter. Now we have "hatched" red-headed ash borer beetles. We don't mind the holes that have been left behind, but, will we have more of the critters? Should we, or is there a product or company that we should use on the counter to prevent more bugs from coming out? We did leave the bark on the slab.
