diseased Alleghany chinkapins in Meadows of Dan

Two large chinkapin tree/bushes about 15 feet apart, bearing nuts. A few branches of each tree have had their leaves turn brown and their bark is not as smooth as the healthy branches. I think that they are diseased and want to know if treatment is available for whatever ails them. Unable to find specific info on web or VA tech site.

Dogwood dying

My father has a dogwood tree that is dying in his front yard. It is covered with a fungus that has black crater-looking spots on it. The limbs with the most fungus are the ones in poorest condition. I would like to know if it is treatable. I've already sent pics to the contact in Halifax, Jason, but would like to know if anyone in Patrick could see it in person.

Need advice on herbicide application during grazing

I have limited pasture area and have had little time to maintain it in past years. I need to spray and reseed these areas, and I am wondering what the best pesticide is to kill the broadleaf weeds without harming my grass or my cattle. Also, is there anything that can be applied now, in the fall, that will keep the yellow flowers (many people are calling them buttercups) from coming up next spring?
