independent tree analysis?

I'm looking for a certified arborist that is not affiliated with a tree removal company. Do you know of such a person? I want as much of an unbiased analysis as possible. I've read that certified arborists working for tree removal businesses tend to want to make extra money on a tree analysis, whether a tree really needs work done on it or not.

I think our horses may be suffering from a vitamin A deficiency this winter....

I think our horses may be suffering from a vitamin A deficiency this winter. I was wondering if dried carrots may be a good additive to their food. This seems to be readily available on the internet and would store well. Is there as much vitamin A in dried carrots as fresh carrots? As I cannot find a supplier of large horse-sized bags of carrots in our area, near Fort Collins, Colorado, dried carrots may be the answer. Is there any other food available in quantites for horses rich in vitamin A or do I have to go to a supplement?

polluted creek

Carter Creek runs through my property in Lacomb, Oregon. About the time we had our first hard rain of the season (before Christmas), it became polluted (upstream and in my own section) with a fecal-smelling orange sludge. It has not cleared yet (mid-Feb). What local organization can test and treat the water for pollutants?

Coverting weedy lawn to food gardens, best cover crops to aid soil building?

I have been letting my Longmont lawn die off for a couple of years and want to convert the entire area to food production. To help reduce weeds and improve soil structure I am considering a cover crop. The lawn is sloped to the sw, so will be building low walls to level into terraces, but want to begin improving existing soil in the meantime. Do you have any specific recommendations for this application? Thanks!!

honey locust pod gall midge

I live in the Colorado Front Range area and have five honey locust trees with varying degrees of twig damage from this midge. I know drought can cause more problems for these trees and I wnat to treat for midges this year. The information in the extension service is from 1988. This recommends pyrethroids (permethrin, bifenthrin),Spinosad, or imidacloprid during egglaying periods. I wonder if more recent work has been done on the insect, Oregon extension did some work on winter soil drenching they called "promising", but I can't find published results. Hope you can help. Thanks! Althea

percheron with strangles and huge abscess on sheath

I recently rescued a big guy who came down with strangles and a huge abscess on his sheath while in quarentine board. He was vetted and treated with penicillin. I just brought him home and he is isolated from my herd still. He has been on penicillin 3 weeks. There is a huge wound on his sheath, with eroding of the hide and ++ dead tissue. They were flushing with H2O2. I am using saline. he has a mild snotty nose and is still a bit off his feed. Can I stop the penicillin? Would the strep infection still be present? Any advice on that sheath care, etc.? It has been - 25 will that kill the bug off the horse? I live in Ontario, Canada

Port Offord Root

I have a stand of Port Offords Cedars that have contracted fungus Phytophthora lateralis. It has killed atleast 15 trees. I have culled the infected trees out, only to notice there are more trees that are infected and in different stages of dying. There are still a few trees in the stand of cedars that have not been infected. However, it seems the fungus is moving its way down the stand of trees. Is it a matter of time until all the trees in the stand become infected? Would I be best to cut down all trees in order to contain the fungus. There is about a 15 foot break from one stand to the next stand of cedars and I would like to try and contain the fungus. Any suggestion would be great. It is my feelings that I should cut all the trees in close proximany of an infected tree in order to try to contain it. I would consider close proximany to be 10 feet. Thanks

Whiteflies already

I have an infestation of white flies on my two live oak trees (the trees are growing in a heavily mulched area, not in the lawn). It is only February for goodness sake. The flies have been there about a week. The trees are about 10-15 feet tall. Can't imagine trying to spray something that tall. Should I be worried? I am guessing they will be moving into other parts of the garden soon.

Preserving ginger juice

I would like to learn more about ginger juice and whether it can be frozen for later use. I have found it to be extremely useful in treating the inflammation associated with fibromyalgia, but peeling and juicing the raw root can be very time-consuming. I would like to make a week or month's worth at a time, freezing in individual portions. Would you be able to direct me to resources on the use and preservation of ginger juice? Thank you.
