Pine beetles in East Texas?

I live in a heavily wooded neighborhood in Gregg County, Texas. Some pine trees have died recently and several residents are concerned that pine beetles are the cause. What should we do to determine whether pine beetles or something else caused the trees to die, and if it is pine beetles, are there treatment options?

Thank you,
Derek

What trees should I plant for shade?

I am needing to plant a tree or trees for shade and to help the appearance of some property I just purchased. It's a home on an acre of land. It looks odd with no trees or plants. I am going to add in flowers and shrubs, but what kind of tree can I plant that's fast growing that will also work for shade? Also when is the best time to plant azaleas?

white spot on my crate Myrtle

Lots of white spots on my crates. The branches appear to be turning black in the areas of the spots. I did treat them (all 55) twice in the spring with Malathion. These trees create two pathway leading down to the lake. I would hate to lose them=(
Thanks Kurt

Killing tree root system

Last summer a tree broke over about 5 feet up. We cut the remaining trunk down to a stump. Now there are new trees sprouting up many feet away from the stump. At least one of the roots of this tree has been growing under a driveway and causing problems. We need to kill the entire root system to prevent further damage to the driveway and stop all these new trees that are sprouting up. We need your advice - stump grinding, some chemical application, a combination? What chemical, how often applied? Do we need to dig up roots, or would a chemical application eventually kill the roots? I am attaching pictures - one to show how far away some of the new trees are sprouting from the stump (stump in background by driveway), and a close up for identification of the tree. Thanks for any help or advice you can give.
