Identifying a fruit type -

My neighbor has a tree that looks very similar - leaves and bark - to a pecan but it has small green fruit with a large stone (very similar to that of the avocado). The fruit is 1 and 1/2" to 2" in diameter, with about a quarter of an inch of meat around the stone. Is it a type of apricot or is there a different fruit I should look at a different type of fruit with which to match this?

Thank you for your assistance,
Don Williams

post oak bores

I have a big post oak in my yard, approximately 2' in diameter, and the bark just above the ground to just above waist height was loose and seperated from the tree. A section of the bark easily fell off and there were lots of bore holes in the tree. It appears most of the bark all the way around the tree will soon fall off. The tree is leafing out and still appears ok above but don't expect it to last with this continued infestation.

Obviously I would like to save the tree but need to know what to treat it with and wondered if wrapping after treatment would help?

Thanks in advance for your help,

How to establish Wild Plum

I recently bought some property and would like to establish a wild plum thicket but not sure how to accomplish that. Native wild plum are in the vicinity and in the same soil type (sandy loam) as where I would like to get them started. Should I did up/transplant seedlings, plant seeds or maybe something else?
