I have an old Christmas tree farm that I am looking to clear cut so I can convert it to hay and other crops. The trees are anywhere from 10' to 30' tall and are mostly Scotch pine. I'm fairly sure that they are only good for pulpwood, but I'd like to understand the process for having them graded, priced and working with a forester to have them cleared. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you. Scott Armstrong

Suddenly dying prized maple tree

We have a very large maple tree on our property. It has always seemed quite healthy & vigorous despite having lost a lot of branches on one side when another tree fell years ago.

Today when I went outside a whole section of the tree has brown leaves. It looked healthy as recently as a few days ago. They seem to be dying from the trunk outward because the tips are still green on all of the affected branches.

There is no visible damage to the main branch affected & i thought it was isolated there, but upon further inspection there are small spots of dead leaves beginning on several other branches on other parts of the tree.
All of the dead leaves I've found have been near the bottom branches.
The dying leaves are brownish & crunchy, not floppy. Attached photos of 1)whole tree 2) affected area 3)leaf that is just starting to die.

Please help! Is there a way to save my favorite tree? I am willing to pay an arborist to come look at it, but I've got no idea where to find one.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

We have just started our Irish Dexter herd and have 3 heifers, all under a year old. We used to raise dairy goats, but got out of them due to the time they required. What types of worms/parasites are common to our area (Toronto, OH) for cattle and what is the recommended treatment/prevention? Also what vaccines are recommended?
