Health of forest


I recently purchased a 3-acre property in Summerfield. I would like to arrange for a visit and review by a Forestry Ranger so as to assess the health of the trees and perhaps discuss alternative plantings (such as apple or pear trees) that I could plant in the future.

The property is sloped and I've noted several trees with what seems to be rot at the base.

thank you

feeding you plants

All my plants have started producing. I currently am using a seaweed and fish fertilizer plus compost tea.
I concerned I'm not giving them enough nutrition. Any suggestions on how I can make improvements .

What is this and are they harmful to dogs?

These things have taken over my front and back porch. Today is the first time I have seen them on the porch and I've been in this house for 2 years. Earlier today my dog had welps on her back and I've never seen her like that. I don't know if it is a coincidence or what. My main concern is for our and our pets safety and health. Someone please help. There's only one in the pic because I was to scared to get the group so I singled one out. Lol

Taking posttest

I recently viewed Promoting Positive Relationships Webinar and I completed the evaluation. I am unable to take the posttest and receive my CEU credit. When I click on the link it says, "You have taken this survey". It does not send me to the posttest.

Male writing spider versus female in appearance?

Does a male writing spider look very different from a female?
I live in Greensboro, NC, and have two writing spiders that I think are female. They seem to have egg sacs in the center of their webs. Will the females make it through our winter and (two-part question) when will the hatchlings appear?
How can I protect the egg sacs?[
