mature pear tree was blown over during rain storm

My pear tree is severely leaning but still alive and I want to drastically prune it and try to raise it back up to save it since I think it helps to pollinate my other pear tree thats 25' away from it. Many branches snapped from the hundreds of heavy pears so a good pruning will only help if I can save it. A so called pro said it might be too far down but I want to try anyway. Any advice ?

what's up with the big tree?

Good day,
I would love to have some expert suggestions concerning a big old tree next to my home in east Finland.

It is about 17 meters high, and the circumference at the bottom is 1 meter,
I guess it is about 60 years old.
It stands 7 meters from the house and of course I love it, but it seems to be dying from the top down.

The rest of the tree looks healthy from a distance, but is it?
Attached to this email you will find some pictures of the top and also of the branches below, and of the way the it is rooted.

Two months ago the dead part was only one meter, now it has more than doubled.

My questions:

1. What's up, do you think?

2. Can I have a professional take off only the dead top and let the rest of the tree be as it is?
Or should the whole tree be cut down?

Thank you so much,

Cat pee and poop and flowers

Will flowers grow in a flower box where cats have previously peed and pooped? Or do I have to change out the whole box. They mostly peed in it. My spring flowers are all spent and it's time to put out fall flowers. Just want to know before I try to plant if the soil has to be changed.

Wall insulation with swamp cooler and brick walls

I need to insulate my home in the Denver area. I'm trying to decide on the best choice of material. I found the CSU Extension overview, but am wondering what is best in my home. Specifically, I use a swamp cooler all summer and have a furnace installed humidifier that runs for the heating season. In the spring and fall there are a few tense weeks when guitar tops start splitting. I'm wondering how keeping my humidity higher effects the choices I make insulating the house. It's a typical early 60s ranch with drywall and studs and a brick exterior. As far as I know, there is no vapor barrier in the wall of any kind. When I redid a shower a few years ago, I could see light coming through spots in the brick. The entire house is cold and drafty, and noises outside often make me think the windows are open. Attic is insulated and windows have been upgraded.

Property loss and rising lake levels

Asking another question: Are there articles about what happens to housing ( in terms of value, liability, foreclosure, etc.) on Lake Michigan when the lake rises? I'm thinking of the properties in St. Joe's that have lost all their beach...and most if not all of their land between their structure and the water.
