Fruit tree questions

Hello, I am wondering if you can point me in the direction of a producer who sells dwarf Apple and pear trees in the area. Or, a good online producer. I'm looking specifically for Liberty, Honeycrisp, Haralson, Frostbite, William's Pride, summer crisp, Parker, and luscious (all varieties recommended on this website) :) Also, I'm new to the area, is it best to plant fruit trees in the fall?

Rasberries wilting

Hi guys, I planted 5 Rasberries from bare roots around late March. Three of them are doing great, one is wilted and looks like it is dead but the other is exploding with biomass but is not putting on any fruit. Can you suggest what is wrong with these two plants? I know that extra nitrogen can make plants grow fast with no fruit but the soil all the plants are in is basically the same. This plant that is growing fast is next to a road and is at the end of a slight downhill. Thanks!

Beautiful Caterpillar?

Yesterday as my husband and I were sitting in our backyard under some maple trees and river birch type trees, a large green caterpillar fell on his foot. It's as big as my finger! I thought it could be a Luna Moth Caterpillar. I see it isn't supposed to live in Southern Oregon, but maybe you could tell me what you think it is?

Why am I finding Bumble Bees in my house?

Since early July I have found at least 18 bees inside my house. Three have been big fluffy bumble-y bees others have been thinner, less colorful ,drone-y looking bees. All have been on the floor, several in the kitchen (one just crawled from under the fridge). Most have been dead or faltering found near the closed sliding door . A few on the kitchen floor near the sink/dishwasher. I have neither heard buzzing nor seen them in flight. I do try to have a bee, bird, and butterfly friendly garden but have been in this house since 1990 and never had this happen. What's going on? Do they swarm or sting at night?

What is this tree...fungus? and how can I "fix" my tree

My tree very recently developed this... thing (about 9" wide?). I assume it is a fungal growth of some kind ??? It looks like sprayed foam and it seems to have 'leaked' slightly and discolored the dirt at the base as well. Any idea what this is and what I should do about it? I really don't want my tree to die!!

Tree leaves turning yellow

A tree in our yard has branches where the leaves are turning solid yellow. No visible sign of bugs. So far on the shady side of tree. Last week it was only 2 small branches so I thought they were just damaged so cut them off, but now it is spreading to larger branches. I don't know what kind of tree but attached photos. White flowers in spring. No fruit but small green berries right now. I also have a full photo of the tree if you need it.

Growth on Camellia Tree

I have a large camellia tree that has crabapple like growths at the end of some (a lot) of branches. In addition, it seems to be dropping a lot of leaves, although there is new foliage. The growths appear to have a small jelly-like substance in the middle of them and some that I have pulled off of the tree look like they might have had an insect emerge from them. Do you have any idea what these are and how I can get rid of them? Thank you. WendyO.

Engelman Ivy bugs/disease

For 2 summers, our Engleman Ivy has started out healthy and then the leaves have gotten holes in them so they look lacey. This year, I noticed little tiny worms on the leaves. We took a photo of the lacey leaves and one with 3 worms on the paper so you can see the size. We would like to know what to do to prevent this worm so it doesn't kill our ivy. Would this bug eventually kill the plant?
