Hi, I work on a stone fruit farm and think that there is something seriously wrong with the tree's, There seems to be very little new lateral growth on the tree's, "noting there are large bare area's of the branches, this is right across the whole range of peaches and Nectarines, i am aware of a tree analysis being done and all was ok, but considering the tree's i am currently pruning, 3 years old, there's lots of bud's on old growth, but there are spaces sometimes measuring 1 ft, January 2011 there was a lot of rain, i thought maybe this may have some influence on the problem, but soil has been tested and feed the nutrients required and soil tests have ok'd the soil, but shock from so much rain is another thought, i leave it up to someone who knows more than i do, to give some idea's as to why this lack of growth happens and some remedies, "then maybe i can hit up the boss for a case of burbon" Thank you Ian

Bark coming off tree - cause and treatment?

We have an autumn blaze maple planted 2.5 years ago. It is 2 inches in caliper now.

It looks healthy except for a spot where the bark is peeling off (pictured). The bark there was brittle and flaked off.

Under the bark we found several insects (also pictured). We've seen these same insects throughout our landscaping. It looks as if they burrowed a hole into the tree.

We're unsure if the insects are the cause of this problem or if there is some other problem that the insects are taking advantage of.

Is this anything to be concerned about, and if so what should we do?

Aspen leaf abnormality

My aspen trees by my house in Evergreen are missing their tip. They curl in and look dry and brown in that area. They are falling off the tree now and are quite dry. There is some yellowish color along the stem near where the point would be. What could this be caused by?

I have what I think is yellow evening primrose. My friend would like some for her garden. Is it to late to divide it and plant in her new garden? Should I wait until fall or spring? Should I cut back the foliage now or wait until the fall?

Mushroom Speaker wanted

Hi, I am a Westchester County NY master gardener. I am also president of my gardern club looking for a knowledgeable speaker on mushrooms for a November 12 meeting. I don't see the topic on your Speakers bureau list. We would want a power point presentation with a brief description of the biology/botany of fungi, a bit about growing mushrooms commercially,descriptions of the various sorts one cooks with. As you are in the heart of mushroom territory we were wondering if you could recommend such a speaker. Would really appreciate it. thanks, Chris Murray 914-967-3204
