Mango corruption

We have been getting mangoes lately with some weird internal (beneath the skin) structure, appearing like teeth or ribs--white in color. Ideas?

Cypress Condition?

Hi there. This cypress tree was transported from my boyfriend's yard (in western NC mountains) to my yard (Piedmont - Concord NC) about 3 weeks ago.

I've been watering it daily (about 8 gallons or so of water), but just noticed the ends of some of the branches are turning light brown. The branches are not as green and lush as they were.

I'm not sure what to do or if I should be concerned. I don't claim to have a very "green" thumb, so any advice is much appreciated.

No growth after a week

I received an amaryllis bulb planted in a pot a week ago. The soil was covered in moss. No instructions as to leaving or removing the moss, so I watered the plant with the moss. Almost a week later there is no sign of new growth, so I removed the moss. Still no sign of a green stem. The soil is still damp around the bulb. Directions say it needs 'bright light' which is a challenge in our home. Is artificial light [from a lamp] OK? Previous amaryllis I've had responded more quickly. Thank you.

URGENT Hurricane Florance, expecting 10-15in rainfall. How likely is this tree to fall on my house?

Idk what kind of tree it is or how deep the roots go. I haven't seen acorns on it, but some brownish/yellowish fuzzy stringy looking things. Please help, very close to my house. We are situated on a slight hill.
