Hi, Can you identify the tree in the attached photo for me? It's a close up of the leaves and seeds with an inset showing two entire trees in front of the Ben Lomond house in Manassas. The seeds have two wings at the top of the stem that are hard to see in the photo. Thanks!

Is the Beltsville lab accepting samples, or has the government shutdown caused this valuable service to cease?

I Have a young white gold cherry tree planted approximately two years ago. The tree seems to be healthy and has exhibited good growth this summer but has developed a 2 inch vertical slit exposing its core in the trunk. The width of the slit is approximately 1/4 inch wide. I sprayed the opening with pruning seal to protect it and hopefully help it heal. Should I be worried about the health of my tree and is there anything I need to do. Thanks.
This plant just exploded out of the ground this summer after chopping down some big trees. I think it's a sassafras, but it doesn't fit the general profile of a sassafras. What exactly is it?

I have these worms or millipedes in the soil of my houseplant. I have trying to identify them and figure out how to remove them if they are harmful. I am hoping they are just millipedes. Thanks.
Hi! We have a peach tree, a plum tree, and an apple tree that just get destroyed each year with leaf curl, Japanese Beetles, and black spot respectively. I want to start a spray program- but I am not sure where to start. I read the extensions paper on spraying- but the products I purchased don't seem to match the recommendations. Can you advise the specific products I should be using now.. and at what rate? Thank you!
i came across this flower in a garden in Alexandria, VA. I was wondering what kind of flower it is.

I remember my dad, a botanist (Coe College 1928) say that the poison ivy vines growing up a tree could eventually kill the tree. I have seen poison ivy vines that once were supported by a small tree now standing alone since the tree died and rotted away. I see numerous trees on the Herndon Centennial Golf Course with thick poison ivy vines and the supporting trees are dead or dying. Those trees are not old and similar trees nearby without the vines appear healthy. So, do you folks know of definitive research concerning the effects of poison ivy growing on a tree? Thanks, Lyle
