My sequoia is 11 yrs old and has been growing outside for the past 5 yrs. During the outside growing years it has done well and had been healthy. After a very dry winter last year and extremely hot and dry summer this year the tree is showing severe brown and dying branches from the bottom up. There was some new green growth in near the trunk, but now it is turning brown. I did water it in the late fall to no avail. Now that winter is here I'm afraid it will not survive. I grew it from a seedling, and would hate to lose it. I live in North central West Virginia. Any advice would be appreciated.

My grandmother's lilac tree which is over 20 ft tall has bark shredding off of it. I noticed holes in the lower area and what I thought was a wasp but now no is a borer. I read you cannot treat what's already in the bark. What can I do now to try to keep them out and prevent them from eventually killing her tree. It is September and they are still going in the tree.

West Virginia insect identification Posted over 2 years ago
I live in southern WV and I found this spider in my bath tub last night. I caught it and threw it off the balcony. I didnt harm it. I always try to save spiders but after researching, I'm wondering if this may be a brown recluse and do i need to spray? I have a 5-year old in the house.
What is the difference between the "mineral oil" that one buys in a store for baby oil, constipation and use on skin and the "mineral oil" in the horticultural oil or dormant oils now being sold for mite and grub protection?

I am doing a report on disinfecting in child care facilities and elementary schools. I am looking for information concerning the connection between a clean learning environment and cognitive/physical child development. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I am unsure how we missed the fruit on this tree in the two years we have lived here, but my husband and I discovered the thousands of cherries dangling from this beauty earlier today. We live in the panhandle of West Virginia.
The problem is, we have no prior knowledge of the trees history or when it was planted. The house itself is about 50 years old. As included in the photos, the fruit is a dark red, the cherries are small, and they tasted both sweet and tart (they may not be ripe yet.)
Does anyone know what type of cherries they are? Sweet or sour? When they typically fully ripen? And any approximate idea of the age of a tree like this???
