Juniper trees

How do these trees mate? I was told the one tree releases pollen in the form of dust and then it lands on the other tree which becomes pollinated and then there is the next part which I am not sure of.. can you tell me if this is correct! I have seen puffs of dust on random trees in the juniper forest and wondered what this was??

Type of shade tree

I have a small piece of property west of New Princeton. I was wanting to plant some trees for shade and habitat for the few local deer. I have a source of water so the trees could be on drip irrigation. Can you recommend a few different breeds of trees and possible local resources that retail these trees.

How to find bulk equisetum (horsetail)?

How can I locate people who have excess equisetum (horsetail), who would be willing to harvest (or allow harvesting of) their top growth? I'm planning some soil regeneration experiments in Oregon.

Alfalfa or clover?

Since grass lawn is a costly waste, should I consider a natural replacement of Alfalfa or Clover instead in the Hines area? If so, where to find seeds for this climate here in Hines? Thanks much!

High Desert tree for privacy border

Hello, my name is John Simpkins, I am an artist who lives in the ghost town of Andrews, just east of Steens Mountain, in the Alvord Desert. The property to the south of this place sold and I would like to plant a line of trees (about 20) that will hopefully grow rapidly and help block the view of their growing assemblage of items there. It's about 4000 feet in elevation here. There is quite a bit of wind. It gets into the 100's in the summer and can dip below freezing in the winter. Can you suggest a tree that might be best for this situation? Thank you for your time! John Simpkins

Apple Tree Dieback

Something is causing the mature trees in our yard to die off. The leaves will turn yellow then fall off. This is happening to our 30 year old Apple and Cherry trees, as well as Mountain Ash. I know this is not much to go on, but do not have anyone locally who can help. Underground water system so trees get watered regularly. We have many different types of trees (9 different fruit trees) in a well established yard. There is some brown spots on the leaves once they turn yellow, but many do not have any browning. I recently treated the trees for invasive insects, but wondering if its something in the soil. I have some pretty good picture if that might help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
