Do you know what kind of fungus this is?

Harry Lauder walking stick

Our 20+ year old HL walking stick shrub has been failing for last two years. It has only a few branches with leaves, although those appear green and healthy. No changes in area around it. What’s going on? My inclination is to cut it way back this autumn. Will that kill it? Help please !

How can I become a resource for Huron County 4-H leaders & children?

I am currently running a ceramic shop in Pigeon, MI and I am very excited to offer the knowledge and information about ceramics in the Arts with the children of 4-H. I am not sure where to start and I would like an outline of what the children should be learning during the process. Can you please let me know who I should contact and where I can get the points to cover in the subject? I am interested in breathing new life into an old hobby.

Caterpillar on Geraniums

In the last two days, I've noticed about 3 of these critters on my potted geraniums on my front porch. I've also noticed a lot of round holes in the leaves of the geraniums. Mostly, I'm wondering what the critter is. But, a lot of geraniums flowers seem to have died without blooming recently. I thought that could be related to how wet the weather has been (lots of brown, moldy leaves on the plants also). But, could these fellows be killing off the buds?

River Rock removal/donation

Hello,
I am turning my easement from a rock bed into a xeric garden and have a lot of river rock to offload somewhere- at least 200 sq ft. I do not have a pickup or other way to move this off the property. Are there any landscaping organizations or recycling services that would accept this as a donation and be able to haul it away?

removing a "bat house"

I've had a bat house (granddaughter built) in my driveway for about ten years with absolutely no sign that bats have ever been there.--no sight, no droppings. I'd like to take this out of my driveway to utilize the space. (Would also like the bat house to be utilized by someone nearer a body of water if I can find one.) My trees have grown to surround the structure so I have no hope of its helping bats (sigh). Should I wait to disassemble the bat house (on a 22 foot pole) just in case or is my conclusion pretty much on target that no bat lives there? Also, how should I proceed with this knowing that wasps, hornets or whatever might have nested inside?

red oak cavity in base of tree

What should I do about this? Because of the nature of the wound and how the bark has attempted to grow around it, the cavity holds water. It seems to me that only allows quicker decay. Should I cut a groove in the base to allow the water to drain out? Should I cover the opening so no water gets in? Should I fill the cavity with concrete or something to prevent water from getting in? The cavity is about 5" x 9". The red oak is about 16" dbh and 60 feet tall. It is adjacent to our house. Maybe it needs to come down??? Thank you.

Linden under attack

I have a linden tree in need of some help; it has looked increasingly sickly over the last few years, and this year it didn't flower or drop seeds at all. I've treated for Japanese beetles, but I am now noticing black spots on the leaves, which have already started dropping last week. From what I've read, it sounds like a fungal infection? Just wondering if there is anything I can do, if a copper spray will help, when I should apply, etc. Thank you for any guidance!

What is this weed?

The first 2 pictures are of a grassy weed that has taken over our entire side yard. If uncut, it will grow over a foot tall. Loves sun or shade. Any idea what it is and how to control it safely? Some of it is growing near our 80 ft deep well so don't want to poison our drinking supply. What is picture #3? It seems to have flower buds near the bottom of the leaf stems. I believe it is an invasive weed? Any good weed identifier books so that I do not have to bother you in the future? Thank you so much!

Neither of us likes to mow, so there's lots of growth, especially crabgrass and what I think might be Broadleaf signalgrass, or Brachiaria platyphylla. I've attached two photos. I used the Virginia Tech weed ID guide to narrow it down. WIhat do you think?
