Hello, I have a tree in my front yard that looks unwell. I don't know what kind of tree it is, but it is taller than my 2 story house and it had needle type leaves. Surrounding the base of the tree is a layer of what looks like a kind of ivy. I have neglected this poor tree and only recently noticed that its branches seem bare (not producing many leaves) and the ivy (or whatever it is) has covered the tree trunk almost to the top of the tree. I hope it's not too late for me to save this tree.
My community association in scientists cliffs put wire around the tree trunks and connected wire to ground stakes. it looks as though the wires have grown half inch into bark and these pines appear stressed and with poor condition. These trees are less than 500 feet from Bay. IT seems the damage is done.
This insect was on a sugar snap pea plant. It was approximately 1/2” long. It had a white spot on either side near the back side.
I'm having problems with Viburnum shrubs, 2 have been attacked by the beetle, I'm concerned that the third one, V. Juddii, is also in danger.

Hello. My fiance and I just recently purchased our home and are unsure of which plants are safe to keep in the area surrounding our home. We would like to forage and keep medicinal use plants, and remove the toxic ones. We also have a cat and raise rabbits which we forage for as well. However this plant pictured is not listed in your catalog. It does not have a strong odor, or flavor, the scent is more similar to the foliage of floral arrangements. It has a hairy stem and seems to be spreading underground through rhizomes, off of a running root system, instead of bulbs. The current height of the tallest we have is approximately 2 feet tall. As this is our first season we have not yet seen it flower. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I am not sure what kind of grass my lawn contains but I put down a fertilizer plus crabgrass preventer in early April and a weed and feed in late May. This lawn had been neglected for many years. I think a lawn service just put application after application of nitrogen for many years. I think the green look and rapid growth fooled the previous owners into believing they had a great lawn. But my guess is the lawn never grew a good root depth and base. What can I do now to help the lawn develop a better root base other then dig up and start over?

My plants look healthy and are flowering nicely. The problem is that the flowers when they mature are falling off and I see no sign of fruit/squash growing.

This looks like the mushrooms at the market. Are they? Thanks
What are these plants named? Are they weeds? Can they be pulled out?
I've had this for several years and always been curious as to what plant it belonged to. Thanks, Wayne Travillion email@example.com

We got a logging truck load of oak to use as firewood. Our barn cat has taken up residency in this huge “jungle gym” She now seems to have an apparent case of ear mites- not a problem we’ve seen with her previously. As we were researching mites in general came across oak mites. Is something we have in the Upper Pennisula? Do you know if these can transfer to pets and humans??? Thank you.

I have an approximate 12 year old sugar maple that appears to be in decline. It sits on the SW side of my house. This is the second year in a row where it has pushed out a number of seed pods and the leaves are very small. Now some of the leaves are shriveling up and turning brown. And the tops of the tree are bare. It has numerous holes from the birds getting sap out of the bark over the past couple of winters. We have also had a large amount of rain this year.

I have cut down most of a very invasive Japanese Plum tree. Dozens of sprout have come up from the roots. They are currently about two feet high. What is the most effective, and/or least effort way to kill the tree and its shoots?

I received two responses from extension staff, neither of which appear to match what I am seeing. The photgraph I provided was of excellent quality, so I am puzzled by the responses. Please see the attached photos. One is the photo I attached to my earlier inquiry. The other is a reference images from Utah State Horticultural department of European Elm Scale. It seems that I have a mild infestation of European Elm Scale. Thank you for your prompt responses.
Thank you for your useful web site! I was able to diagnose what is wrong with my turf: the drainage in my yard is poor, and what with the ongoing thawing-and-freezing cycle, I am pretty sure that this is the problem. However, I don't see a response: I am not sure what my next steps should be. My inclination is to spread grass seed, add a thin layer of compost, and water regularly. Thoughts?

My son just bought a house and it has lovely gardens. The previous owner told him all the plants are native. Attached are a few that I could not identify. Could you please tell me what they are. Thank you
I am replacing my flower and vegetable garden's soil about a foot deep. I had a load of dirt delivered from a company. They made it 1/3 dirt with some sand, 1/3 organic peat and 1/3 manure. It is spread out already. It's like mud. Will this mix dry for planting? (It just rained here in Mpls. 1".) QUESTIONS: Did they tell me right? Is this the correct mix? (I know I should've asked before it was done, but my husband did all the work before I could ask you!!) Yikes!
