Pruning apple trees now

We have several small apple trees - all about 15 years old. They are bearing fruit this year but it is all infected despite our regular Neem treatments. I would like to simply prune the trees now, removing all fruit and extraneous limbs (and hopefully the disease vectors), and start over again next year. Will this harm my trees in any way? Any other thoughts?

Noxious weeds

I live by a Black Hawk Co. Park owned by City of Waterloo. The field next to my home is full of Canadian Thistle and has been getting worse over the years. It would be nice if the City would mow this but they won't. The thistle is in my yard and over the 30+ years of living here they have not maintained it other than letting what was a pheasant cover now fill with thistle and small trees. We were told that they would burn it to keep it for pheasant. Never done. The thistle is also a problem for the neighbor across the street who farms for Farmer's Market. Is there anything that can be done? The location is the 1100 blk of Martin Rd. Waterloo, IA.

Little bugs on the basswood trees?

We own a resort in Orr, MN and our grounds have many basswood trees. We recently noticed tiny little bugs on the leaves. We have never seen bugs like this before. They are eating the leaves. We don't know if this is related, but all around the trees on the ground is extremely sticky. We hope you can tell us what these bugs are, why they are showing up, and how we can get rid of them. Thank you!

Joe Pye Weed Dying

I have a stand of Joe Pye Weed and noticed some of the stems are dying off. I look closely and there are small holes in the stems. I saw a small whitish caterpillar with black stripes inside one of the holes. I also noticed small piles of something? beneath the stems. Any idea what's happening or what I can do? I'm not sure if the cause is insect damage or not. Next to the Joe Pye is a stand of rudbeckia that is wilting and dying off but I can't find any insect damage on the rudbeckia plants. So many two separate issues at play here?

wilting native perennials

I have a small native perennial garden in my yard. Last year, nearly all of my mist flower began to wilt and then die. None of it came back this year. Now, the next set of plants over from the mist flower are wilting and dying. I don't see any insect injuries on the stems. The plants wilt from the flower first but eventually the entire stem dies off. The plants currently impacted are a tall rudbeckia variety. Any suggestions?

Cause of and Treatment for Sick Ivy/Honeysuckle?

This spring/summer, in my side yard, my English Ivy and pink honeysuckle bush have lost almost all of their leaves. This has happened to the honeysuckle in the past years but never to the ivy. The honeysuckle has responded in the past to an anti-fungal spray, but it didn't help much this year. The ivy has brown burned looking spots in the leaves that remain. The honeysuckle got whitish mildewy- looking spots before the leaves fell off. What could be the cause and how might I treat it? I am attaching pictures of both.

Evaluating tree health

My backyard has a lot of trees ( in Hillandale Forest area of M County) two of which are dead and need to be removed. My question is does the extension service have recommendations for an independent expert who would, for a fee, come and evaluate the health of the remaining trees to determine if they are in need of selective pruning or feeding or if they are in decline and would also need to be removed. I'm leary of using a tree removal co. to evaluate as I suspect they would suggest a lot removals or pruning that may be biased towards keeping their company busy as opposed to what's best for the trees. Any suggestions or referrals ? Thank you for your help.

Big Branches Falling From Walnut Tree

I have a walnut tree about 60 feet tall. This summer, big branches from high atop the tree are breaking off and falling to the ground. These branches could hurt someone badly. We have had little rain and no storms or wind. These branches are loaded with walnuts. What is causing this to happen? It has happened three times within 10 days. I hate this, as it's a beautiful tree and has always looked healthy.

Pool Build and Tree

Hi, my wife and I are considering putting a pool in our back yard. Due to wetland/property setbacks, we are left with only one spot that would not encroach on these and that is next to a very large oak tree. I do not want to harm this tree, so my question is how close to this tree can we get without doing so? Attached are a few pictures to get an idea of this location. My guess is that there will be about 10-15 feet between the tree trunk and the pool.

Rasberries wilting

Hi guys, I planted 5 Rasberries from bare roots around late March. Three of them are doing great, one is wilted and looks like it is dead but the other is exploding with biomass but is not putting on any fruit. Can you suggest what is wrong with these two plants? I know that extra nitrogen can make plants grow fast with no fruit but the soil all the plants are in is basically the same. This plant that is growing fast is next to a road and is at the end of a slight downhill. Thanks!
