My live oak has numerous bored holes encircling the trunk about every 3 feet. What could cause this and how should I treat it? Thanks lots.
Have oak tree. 8ft circumference. Need recommendation for knowledgeable person (expert) on whether or not tree can be save. Lightning struck many years ago.
I would like to attract more deer to my property and have been reading which nut trees are best for that purpose. I found that the Burr Oak is a good oak trees for its quality and size of acorn but pails in comparison to the Chestnut tree. I also understand that when the Chinese Chestnut was brought into this county that they also brought in a blight that decimated the American Chestnut tree. I also found that there have been some success in creating hybrid Chestnut trees by crossing the American with the Chinese variety to create a tree that is not as susceptible to the disease.
So my question is will a Chestnut tree grow specifically in Polk county Texas and if so where would I be able to purchase some of these trees. Second question, I am also planting pecans, and hickory trees for wildlife, is there other trees I should considered. I have a bottom land (clay) as well as sandy loam soil.
Thanks for your advice

I am planning on growing tomatoes in a five- gallon bucket. How much water would a mature tomato plant need per week for maximum production?

All of my pecan tree leaves have been eaten up by caterpillars. I have searched the Internet and come up with the walnut caterpillar. Upon looking around the region, nearly all the pecan trees are eaten up. I live in southern Polk County in Texas. Can you send me information on these critters, and what might be done to detour another outbreak?
I am in the early process of starting a 15 acre pecan orchard close to Livingston Texas. At this time I have 35 trees planted and will expand to 180. However before extending the orchard I would like to have my soil tested to determine what it lacks for growing pecan trees. Will you please let me know how I go about having my soil tested.
