Split Maple tree

We have a 30 yr old Maple tree that split about 5-6 feet above the ground during a recent storm. We really want to preserve the tree as long as possible. The split is 4-5 inches deep, at least 12 inches long. We had our tree trimmer cut out dead limbs and tied the upper sections together with bolts, cable with a come-along. It reduced the gap. I've not been able to get a response from our local County Extension. Is there anything I should pour in the crack to prevent bugs and/or diseases? Any advice is appreciated.

What's destroying my plants

I have an in-ground vegetable garden and one in pots. My tomato plants have some kind of black and brown spots om withered leaves. My cucumber and squash plants have what looks like powdery mildew and I think are being eaten by something. I have lost two squash plants in days. The stems just rotted. I'm pretty sure squash beetles are on some of my plants. The cucumbers and squash are becoming soft. I need to know what I'm up against and how to combat it without using chemical pesticides. They have honeybees bear one garden that I definitely don't want to jeopardize and I am trying to grow food as close to organic as possible. I would greatly appreciate any help yout can provide.

formula for estimating horse body weight

I have found 2 formulas for estimating horse body weight. Which one should I teach 4-Her?

heart girth x heart girth x length divided by 330= est. weight

Heart girth x heart girth x length divided by 330 + 50= est. weigh

examples of 3 horses estimated and then weighted match the +50 better. In fact that was usually still an 50 lb under calculation.

Invasive plant

Do you have specific recommendations for removing a large infestation of Japanese Angelica Tree? I have been using a 3% solution of Triclopyr with fair results, but am unsure whether the roots will generate more growth. I have been cutting larger specimens that are simply too tall to spray since they are mixed in with surrounding foliage. I plan on addressing new growth from those stumps as it appears.
