Ash Tree

We live in Abingdon, near Festival Shopping Center, and have two ash trees that are dying. Has this area been impacted by the emerald ash borer? We have many dead branches all over. Last year it began with the leaves wilting and looking sickly. This year many of the leaves did not return, as the branches have died. Thank you, Carolyn

Evergreen selection

We live in Mt, Hood Parkdale and are looking for evergreen suggestions for planting in the entry area (west side of home). We do not want it to exceed 8-10' and if it had some color variation that would be great. It would get later day sun. It is also on the dryer side of lot although we do have an irrigation system.

Leaf dropping

my 100+ year old mulberry tree has in the last week been dropping leaves like crazy. My front yard looked more like mid Sept than mid Jun. I literally raked up a full large plastic bag of leaves this morning. The rate of dropping has slowed but it has far from stopped. Should i be very worried. This tree covers my entire front yard.

Garden pest identification

Hi, I have a ground cherry growing in a pot in my garden and recently noticed that the leaves were being eaten by something. There are a lot of ants on the plant so I suspected aphids, but today I found these guys munching on the leaves. Any idea what they are? I’ve never seen them before.

how to care for trees in a drought

I am a new member of the Paonia Tree Board and we would like to get information out to people regarding watering trees in a drought. Do you have some handy information we can put on our facebook page?
We also want to inventory the street trees in Paonia so we can begin to take care of them. Is there an app that can make the inventory process easier for us volunteers?
Thank you for your time.

Rose chafers

I am dealing with a biblical plague of rose chafers. So far, after 24 hours, I am still picking them off by hand into a jar with soapy water. They do seem to be significantly diminished, but that is because I have time to do this this week. They continue to fly in. I used Sevin on plants that I won't be consuming the leaves, but this leaves the kale, beets, arugula, lettuce, etc. vulnerable. Maybe I need to put up row covers? But no one in town has them for sale right now so I would have to DIY. Any other ideas to save more poor, young vegetable garden?

Promoting moss growth

An area in my yard used to be lawn but over the years shade from tree growth (Doug firs and laurels) has caused the grass to almost die out. Moss has started to take over which I like. How do I encourage Moss and fern growth, and kill the remaining sporadic grass growth without killing the moss?

Good or bad worm or grub?

We have never had these worms until we had new black dirt and sod put in our yard, 3 years ago. Are they from the dirt and or sod? Are they good or bad? Should we try to get rid of them or leave them alone? We have a lot of them.

Apple Tree Trouble

Our 60 year old apple tree looks distressed. It bloomed in the spring and has a few apples but leaves are turning yellow, there are dead limbs and there is an orange fungus on the bark but not on the leaves. The internet said it could be lichens or rust but the pictures don't look the same. We live in Kingsville, Md. My husband wants to cut the tree down. I know it needs trimming but don't think that would cause yellow leaves and whatever that gross stuff is on the bark!

Boron resistant plants and milkweed starts

Looking for boron resistant plants. Dwarf maple suffered, would like to replace him with tree that will reach no more than 6-8'. East facing, gets morning sun, afternoon shade. Tried milkweed from seed and failed. Is there a source for plant starts?

Our property has been infested with caterpillars. I thought they were tent worms but my son thinks they are gypsy worms. We have millions of them and they are killing off my trees. We started spraying them 8 days ago with Dawn dish soap and water. 6 days ago we started using Sevens spray. 3 days ago we started scooping them into a bucket and burning them. We have burnt 5 buckets full. This hasn't even made a dent in them. It looks like 20 of our pine trees will need to be cut down - they are solid brown. My Silver Maple is covered with the worms and when we spray the trunk of the tree they fall off in sheets. We don't know what to do. They cover my house and pole barn exterior. Please give me suggestions.
