What material should I use to fill in a void in the trunk of my dogwood

I have a dogwood tree with a cavity in the trunk about 3 inches in diameter . I've cleaned out the dead wood and sprayed for the ants I saw inside. Now I would like to fill the void to prevent more insects from nesting and give the trunk more strength/stability. What material should I use to fill the void? Thank you Gary

Tree Identification

There is a large tree near my property that I am having trouble identifying. It is growing in a swampy area at the edge of a pond with a lighter gray bark. I have attached pictures of the leaves which grow in groups of three. Most of the tree identification tools that I have used point to Acer Negundo, but this just doesn't match. Any ideas of what this could be?

Lawn moss control

I have removed moss, scraped ground, tilled, replanted grass only to have moss take over once again. So now I see web sites saying that moss can be controlled by using sulfate of iron. Mixed with water, sprayed on lawn, moss dies, remove with rake. Since this is in sun, shade, combination, under trees, on slopes or flat, there is no one specific thing I can find causing the moss lawn. So before spending money on iron and taking the time to spray, does this work? And if so, is there a specific type of sulphate of iron to best to buy that is water soluable? Thanks Ron Petterson, Pfafftown

Fig tree and Asian pear tree planting

Hello, My name is John Ludwig, I live in Southeast Winston-Salem. I have purchased a golden fig tree and an Asian pear tree. I will be receiving both trees early next month. The Asian pear will be delivered bare root. I do not know about the pear. The orchard grower has detailed instructions on planting. I am contacting you to see if there is any soil specific recommendations you have for me here in WS. Any particular amendments you would recommend would be very appreciated. I plan to paint the trunk of the pear white to help with the early spring temperature fluctuations but if there is a better way please let me know. Should I surround the fig tree with burlap for the winter months? The sites that I have chosen receive about 7 to 10 hours of sun per day during the year. I recently moved here in June and used an app on my phone to check the sun exposure for the year to decide where to plant. If there is anything in general about growing Asian pears and fig trees here in NC please send me a link if you can. Thank you, John Ludwig
