Using Railroad Ties for Raised Beds

Can I use railroad ties (soaked in creosote) to build a raised bed for grapes? Is there a concern about creosote leeching into the fruit and making it inedible? Many thanks in advance...

Ficus tree care, outside in Arizona

Do Ficus trees have a pruning season? Can I do anything to minimize the REALLY messy berries? Do they need fertilized? These trees are 30' or so tall with approx 20' to 30' canopies. They are beautiful but so messy & the dogs track the berries into the house, they ruin the carpet. thank you in advance for any help!

Apricot curling leaves

The leaves on my mature apricot tree are all curled [lengthwise]. They are not wilted, and they do not have the reddish spots I see in pictures of peach tree leaf curl. They do have some small yellow spots, but not a lot of them. A nearby neighbor's apricot tree died over the winter. Is mine endangered? Is there something I should be doing?

Tree Riddled with Holes

This tree is on the city side of the street and though it generally looks healthy, I've wondered how long that will continue since it is absolutely riddled with holes and there is one large branch that is covered in a white fungus/mold. I've asked the city to trim it but they have so far not responded. It is near cars and could reach our houses if it were to fall. I love this tree -- great shade, beautiful white blossoms in the spring -- just finished. But am concerned about its health. Trucks of any size are continually assault by it's branches -- it's really the only way the tree gets "trimmed" -- by being pulled at by passing trucks. Thanks for any advice/info/assessment you might be able to offer.
