Is bladderwort good for composting?

We have bladderwort floating on a nearby lake in the Hudson Valley. It seems like this would be good compost. True? Any advice on handling it, drying it, quantities or anything else? Thanks.

Avocado tree leafs turning brown

Hello, I grew my avocado from a seed. It is about a 1 year old but now it’s leaf’s are turning brown and curling. I’ve tried to change the soil to “moisture control potting mix” but it does not seem to have made any difference. I also water it about once a week. Can you tell me what I can do to help it?

Health of willow tree

A few days ago, a massive limb (50-60 feet long, 12-15" thick) creaked and fell from the trunk of a willow tree. Fortunately, it missed the house. The willow leaves and tree otherwise looked healthy, but I am now wondering about the condition of the tree (especially given its proximity to the house). Because it is a soft wood, I cannot determne its condition. Is there a way to determine the health of the tree in order to decide whether to leave the tree up or take it down, or must I tempt fate ?

Tree Identification

I would like to identify this tree on our property. I love it but have heard that it may have shallow roots and it is close to the house. It has hanging extensions off each branch.
