Dogwood dying

My father has a dogwood tree that is dying in his front yard. It is covered with a fungus that has black crater-looking spots on it. The limbs with the most fungus are the ones in poorest condition. I would like to know if it is treatable. I've already sent pics to the contact in Halifax, Jason, but would like to know if anyone in Patrick could see it in person.

Fire ants in Virginia?

Are there fire ants in Patrick County, Virginia? I found a series of two new mounds on the lawn this morning that were not there yesterday evening. We live on Riverside Drive right along Poorhouse Creek. These ants are red but smaller and much more easily agitated and more aggressive than the ones I'm used to seeing.

diseased Alleghany chinkapins in Meadows of Dan

Two large chinkapin tree/bushes about 15 feet apart, bearing nuts. A few branches of each tree have had their leaves turn brown and their bark is not as smooth as the healthy branches. I think that they are diseased and want to know if treatment is available for whatever ails them. Unable to find specific info on web or VA tech site.
