Plumb trees

G'day mate, I have a 3 year old plum tree. Some of the leaves are sort of starting to curl, and some have tiny red spots on them. I'm guessing I need to spray with something, there is no fruit on there. I'm a winemaker (oenologist- b. Ag science ) so I know a bit about grapes, but I'm not sure how to do plums. Copper surface? Or

is there a better option?

Japanese Sky Pencil Holly

Hi there- I have 2 sky pencils planted in my front yard. They were both planted back in June or July. One of them is doing great but the other we have just noticed has some leaves turning. They aren’t green anymore and more of a light green/gray. We are worried they are dying. Is there anything we can do to prevent this or rectify the branches?

Tree roots

We have mature trees at the back of our yard. They have created large, bumpy roots throughout the yard. These are likely dangerous as we age. Hackberry and black walnut. Can i cover the roots with soil? In other words, raise the level of the yard a few inches?
