I am a nursery grower in Burnet County. I have people asking me for Hazelnut trees maybe twice a month. My gut feeling is that we don't have enough chilling hours in this area. Can you tell me if they will grow here. I have read that they are native to parts of north Texas.

Hello! We are doing some site changes here at Country Campground just south of Detroit Lake. We have some 18 y/o ash trees that are down in an area where we would like to fill in to bring up the grade of that area. I've read so much information online regarding things that can stress & kill a tree. We definitely do not want to lose these trees and would like some advice on what we should not do with our landscaping. We are kind of in a time crunch to complete these sites to get them seeded also.
At this time, we have fill dirt approx 7-10 deep within the dripline...but only on half of the the original dirt. We are thinking of building treated 4x4 boxes around the base of the tree 3 ft square to keep as much of the deep fill dirt away from the bark as possible...and considering adding mulch inside for appearance and safety as to not leave a hole to step into.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Todd Mitchell :-) 701-330-5678 countrycampground.org

We live on a small acreage in Warren County. During the last storm, last week, we discovered that we lost a very large Oak Tree. When approaching the Oak to cut it up, (because it damaged a fence), we discovered that the whole tree was infested by honey bees. We were able to cut the tree and the bees did not disturb us. However, there are many of them and large honeycombs are present. What should we do about this?

I live about two miles east of the coast in Bandon. I'd like to know if it is too late to plant onions by seed this fall since the weather is so mild.
My soil test, E29765, reports my Calcium as 3026 ppm, my pH as 7.7, my Lime index of 0 & my magnesium of 232 ppm. Is 3026 ppm of calcium too much, not enough or just right? Also, my magnesium is listed as above optimum. What, if anything, can be done to chage that to optimum? Thank you. Todd Lautner.

A local nonprofit acquired hundreds of tulip bulbs to sell at a local fair. They sold lots, but still have hundreds left. Can they store them in a dry, cool place over winter and sell in the spring? Will tulips thrive if NOT planted in the fall? Can they store the tulip bulbs over winter for sale next August/September, 2014? If so, what's the proper procedures to ensure good, healthy bloomers in the future?

A person just asked me if it was okay to put an accessory building on his rural residential property if there was no dwelling. Our zoning ordinance was just amended to say (In zoning district R-R, accessory buildings shall be allowed without the residency requirement). He said his rural residential property was just a little over one acre. Our schedule of regulations says the minimum lot size for rural residential lot is 10 acres. My question is, because his property is not 10 acres, does that mean he doesn't qualify for an accessory building?

Hi I've tried to identify this spider on my own but I keep coming up with a big Maybe. I was wondering if the image attached is a Hobo spider or one of it's harmless cousins? I looked through your links especially the PDF about identifying Hobo spiders from WSU. We have found and killed two of these so far. We didn't realize that we should keep the bodies to identify using the Palps. Any chance you would be able to identify that spider?
I have 3 Honey locust trees that I am having trouble with. The first one had leaves begin turning yellow back in June. Then the leaves browned on the tips and fell off. Then it started on the tree next to it and now it is starting on another tree just next to that one. I have tried watering more, then watering less to see if that made any difference, which it didn't. This season (for the first time) I fertilized the trees and used a soil activator. I also added more mulch to the first one that it happened to but I cleared it away from the base of the tree. There are no signs of mites. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to save my trees.
