Questions about Rocky Mountain Gardening in Feb and March

My boss is doing a National TV broadcast talking about what gardeners in various regions will be doing during the months of Feb and March. We are very familier with practices in the NE US, but not in your area. Can you give me some information about what gardeners are doing in your area this time of year.?

Is this leaf a sign of a bigger problem?

We have lived in our house for almost 6 years, and there is a large (70 ft high and about 4 ft in diameter) tree in the backyard. Last year the leaves started falling off in the spring, and it is happening again. Why is it happening and how can I fix it?

6 E. Brookhaven Rd. Walllingford,PA

I was in a privledged position to acquire a property rich in horticulture and steep in history. It sits on over 3 well-appointed acres, and has over 600 different species of exotic plant life. The center piece of this gorgeous property is a historical gem with over 5,000 sq/ft of living space. Each individual invited onto the property proclaims in abundance the wealth of existing plant and tree life. As I understand it, the property operated years ago as Wallingford Rose gardens where Dr. Kassab gained inspiration to cultivate his own species of Holly tree. I've been completely overwhealmed in my attempts to revitalize this property and restore it to its glory, as I have a limited understanding of Bald cypresses, dawn redwoods, umbrella pines, and more Japanese maple species than I can count or have the ability to dig up and re-pot. My question to you would be; could this property serve as an additional asset or resource to your institutions horticulture program?

Grass Carrying wasps

I have just located what I believe to be a grass carrying wasp nest in the aluminum track of my boys' bedroom window. I have removed it. Both of my boys have been stung by something while sitting near that window. It has produced significant swelling and redness. Would a sting by this type of wasp, even though non-aggressive, produce this type of reaction, or should I keep looking for the culprit?
