time to plant trees.

I have a small parcel of land in Summer Lake Oregon. I would like to plant Aspen, Birch, and Russian Olive trees. What time of the year is the time to plant these trees ?? Do you know of other trees that would grow in that country ?? It has nothing on it now, except Juniper, sage brush. Thanks, Ken Kime 541-344-7178

Advice on reforestation of acreage above Summer Lake

Hello - We recently purchase 120 acres in the hills above Summer Lake, rising up to Winter Ridge. Several of the acres were burned in the fire some years ago. We are looking for advice on how and what to plant. There is an excess of juniper on the property, several tall pines remaining, limited aspen. Does OSU provide an extension service for advice in this region? Do you have other resources to recommend? We are starting from zero, basically, and welcome all help. Thank you!

I just pruned some grape vines (12 years old) that have a dark brown center to the stems and the bark is shredded. Is this a fungus and how do I treat it?

topdressing sand

I live in Christmas Valley & am a board member for the Park & Recreation District here. We have a 9 hole course that was built back in the 60's. Does it matter what type of sand is used for the greens? If so, what do we need to use?

Honey bee colony loss

Greetings, I lost 16 out of 20 honey bee hives in Summer Lake valley between October and December of 2018, all were strong hives with at least a deep hive body of surplus honey stores. another beekeeper in the valley lost all of his hives, same scenario, they did not die in the hive. Need to chat with some one regarding possible causes. In the spring of 2018 BLM aerial sprayed herbicides on the Ana fire burn scar area which is about 1 mile from my winter apiary then seeded it. Can the extension do toxicology test on the few remaining dead bees in the hive? Just trying to find answers.
