Hello, I have attached pictures of a plant I have growing on my property and am unable to identify it. I have tried looking it up in books and using online resources but to no avail. This plant is very low growing, it is some kind of woody plant, maybe even a shrub or bush of some kind. Can anyone help me identify it? I apologize for the poor pictures, I hope they are good enough. Thank you, Rick Aufderheide Crosby, MN

What's wrong with my tree and what do I do to save it?

This is the 3rd tree in my yard in the last 2 years to have issues and the other two have died. I would like very much to save this one. It is about 23 years old. I do not know what type of tree it is, but I have included pics of the leaves for identification. We do currently have a large infestation of carpenter ants that are being treated by an exterminator. Also, moles are a problem in the area of the tree. It has begun dropping yellow leaves, and around some of the sores on the bark there is a thick gooey pus. Any thoughts?

Boron spray

I read in a soil and plant nutrition book about Hood River Pear growers spraying boron in the Fall to increase fruit set the following Spring. Is this practice still being used, and what is the reason behind it? I am thinking about spray my Variegated Holly trees to help set fruit since they are somewhat fussy about fruiting. Thank you, Paul.

Over-fertilization?

I recently added a third raised vegetable bed and the beans and tomatoes I planted are all yellow. Could the Splendid blend from the Bark Place been too much? Or was it the fish fertilizer I used after planting? My other beds are doing fine.

What is this in my apple tree?

I have a young apple tree that started to give flowers after 4 years and now some small apples are showing up. I noticed two falling small apples already and some of the few are showing stain marks. I also noticed some tiny small leaves drying up. I guess that I will need to get something for protecting the tree from pests. But, what is calling me the attention is a "mole" surrounding a little branch. Perhaps a funny neighbor put a bubble gum around, but I don't think so. Do you have any idea of what this "mole is? If necessary, I can send you in an envelop the piece of branch with the "mole" that is about 5". Four pictures of the mole are attached. If you request, I can send you pictures of the tree, the affect apples, trunk, etc. as well. Thanks.

Korean Spice Vibernum

We have a nicely shaped Korean Spice Vibernum in our back yard that budded out nicely this Spring, but suddenly all of the buds died about a month ago. It is about 5' tall, 4' across, nicely rounded shape. All of the other plants nearby (blueberry, grasses, Privet, and others) are growing well and flowering if and when they need to. We don't use any chemicals, other than worm compost, on any of our plants, trees, shrubs, etc., so I don't think it got a whiff of something toxic. There appears to be no life when we do a scraping on a branch. We have had it for 10 years or so and it has been thriving until this year. No rotting, infestation, or visible abnormalities.... other than dead buds that never opened. Main trunk looks fine. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help,
Richard

Japanese Maple, 25 years old

We live in Ottawa County Michigan and have had a beautiful Japanese Maple in our front yard (18 ft. out from our West facing home) for about 25 years. We do not use any fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides near it or on it. This year the Western-most side of the tree has not produced any leaves or growth whatsoever. There appears to be no disease or infestation - and there does not appear to be any breaks in the bark from injury. The East side of the tree is fine. Tree is about 6' high and 12' across. There is no life under the bark on the West side. Could this have been caused by the severe and long cold Winter season we had? Should we remove the dead limbs and hope for new growth or replace the entire tree? I would provide a picture but I don't know what to show.

Thank you,
Richard

Lemon tree needs diagnosis... I have seven pictures in all, five of the problem tree (#1), and two of what appears to be the healthy tree (#2), but could only attach one pic of the #1 tree. Both trees were grown from seedlings from the same tree here in California about two to four weeks apart. I have cared for them in the same way (same soil, watering, put outside on a regular basses for sunlight, etc). The first one has what appears to be brown spots on the leaves & the leaves appear to be disfigured. The second one doesn't have this going on. The first one started out as a healthily looking tree, and it seems that all the new growth from it doesn't have these spots at first, but develops them eventually. Do you have any idea what this might be & how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Eric
