Pond bank erosion

Our house sits on the bank of an approximately 3 acre man-made pond (originally a stock tank I think). There is a 30+ year old oak tree on the (sandy) bank, not far from the water line. For the last year, we have been raising geese and ducks, which spend most of their time in the water or on the bank, and predictably, they have eroded the bank considerably. Many of the tree roots are exposed under the water line and I am concerned about the tree's health, as well as the fact that the house sits on the bank as well. I know that we need to build the bank back up, but what material would be most stable, not harmful to the tree, and resistant to further erosion? Please don't suggest getting rid of the waterfowl, as we have grown very attached to them - surely there is a way to correct this problem. Thanks for any advice you can give.

What larvae feed on Turk's Cap?

We have transplanted some native Turk's Cap (Malvaviscus drummondii) into our patio garden. Recently the leaves of several plants have been enjoyed by some kind of larva (moth? butterfly?). I've been searching the plants to see if I can find the caterpillar, but apparently I've missed them all. None of my reference books give information on what Turk's Cap is host to. Can you help ... I'm wondering what, if any, I should watch out for and when they might appear.

Dying Oak Trees

We have almost 5 acres covered with oaks and pines, 1 acre cleared for homestead in Huntsville. This year, we have already removed 3 very large oaks and now 5 more are dead or dying in our yard area. They all leafed out and then seemed to turn brown within a three-four day time period. Two more are beginning to lighten in color and I am afraid of losing them too. Is there an arborist in the Huntsville area? Any ideas about what is happening? How can I tell if it is fungus, root rot, drought, too much water? Several others in my neighborhood are losing trees also.
