I sent my hedge question a minute ago but there were no places to upload the image on that screen. I'm attaching it to this one.
My Douglas Fir has bluish/ gray spots on trunk & branches. I've only lived on the property for 2 months. Looks like quite a few branches were removed on north-east side of tree. Is there any hope?

Do you offer annual well testing services. Can you perform well testing services to tell what minerals are in the water?

I have heard that powdered detergents should not be used if you are on a septic tank. Could you please explain this to me and direct me to some good written material on the subject (so that I can reference it to others)? Thanks!

I've been doing some research on whether I can and should grow an autumn olive tree for its fruit and nitrogen fixing abilities. The maps in https://www.techlinenews.com/articles/2017/autumn-olive-and-russian-olivewhats-the-difference suggest that autumn olive is already present in the Willammette Valley. When I look up whether the plant is invasive around here, I get a heap of information about it being a problem on the east coast, but I can't find any definitive sources on whether or not it's similarly problematic in Oregon. I don't see it listed as a noxious weed on https://www.oregon.gov/oda/programs/weeds/oregonnoxiousweeds/pages/aboutoregonweeds.aspx. Additionally, a nursery in Portland lists several varieties of autumn olive for sale with big red warnings about east coast states but no such notes about Oregon (https://onegreenworld.com/product/ruby-2/, https://onegreenworld.com/product/garnet-2/) In the absence of other information, I would err on the side of not planting something which has gotten so badly out of hand elsewhere, but then I realized I could ask you instead! Why is autumn olive so invasive elsewhere, and yet not listed as a problem around here? Can I grow autumn olive safely in Benton County, or should I avoid it?

I was wondering where I could get inexpensive fir trees to replant my property? I live on a forested mountain and the previous owner cut down a lot of firs.
