pesticide drift

Each year (June to early July) a plane sprays a nearby field. My field lies north of the field so when the spraying is done on a day with a southerly wind, my pasture, blueberries, beans, and tomatoes take a big hit.
I have reported this to State Ag; they send a person up, look at the damage and nothing is ever done to notify the farmer/sprayer of the problem. Last year no less than five people showed up, looked, and took samples. This included a person from the pesticide division of Ag. Never heard from them again

Seems like I have done all that I can do; any help here, any suggestions?

can I save my lilac tree

tree is maybe 6 yrs old. bleeding sap at ground level to trunk. showing dying limbs. Is the tree a total loss? will it help if I prune away dying limbs. I feel certain tree was damaged by a weed eater machine. at ground level/or just below I found a chunk of trunk was missing. I have seen trees that have lower trunk wrappings...is this a way to heal an injured tree.

Dollar weed in St Augustine

I used ‘Image’ then ‘atrazine’ but the dollar weed is holding on. Google search says "most effective herbicide is Metsulfuron Methyl - expensive, slow, and difficult but effective on Dollar weed and safe on St Augustine." Can someone advise me ? is this the same as MSMA and will I still have to spray atrazine for the other weeds?

Bottle Brush Freeze

I have three large Bottle Brush plants which turned brown after the last hard freeze. They are about 3 years old and about 7 ft tall and were a favorite with the hummingbirds. I've left them alone, hoping they will recover. I noticed that they are starting to grow some green leaves, but there's still lots of brown leaves and branches. Do I leave them alone or do I need to start cutting the brown branches and leaves? I'll send some photos if you would like to take a look at them.
