Pear slugs

I noticed pear slugs on my pear tree that I had planted 2 years ago. I don't like to use poisonous insecticides but prefer to use more natural methods. What would work on this?

Ends of aspen branches nipped off by nocturnal animal

Our 10 inch diameter aspen tree has been under attack for over a month and is looking pretty bare. We pick up 4-6 inch branch ends that have not even been nibbled on, just snipped off. This morning we counted 135. We assume the animal is nocturnal, since we don't see it happening during the day and the ends are on the ground in the morning. Attached are photos of each end. It's always a clean cut with no chewing and always the tip of a branch. What might be doing this damage and how do we stop it? Thanks for your assistance, Dick & Jacquie Zimmerman

knapweed spraying

Will knapweed sprayed with chemicals in the spring return again the next year? Will spraying be needed year after year?
Would goats eating the weeds be as effective as spraying?

Thinning aspen trees

We're acquiring a house at about 7,000' that has been vacant and not maintained for several years. The yard is jammed with 1" thick aspen starters, some as high as 4-6' tall, as well as 6 or 7 mature healthy aspens. Deer have raked the bark off of many of the starters and lots of them appear dead or really struggling. I don't want to stress the big healthy trees by making mistakes. Do I just lop off the unwanted trees at ground level? Is there a recommended distance between the ones I leave alone? Do I apply any chemicals to the ones trimmed at ground level? Thanks!
