help me identify this plant?
I am seeing a lot of dead ornamental trees in our Meridian Idaho neighborhood this spring. Particularly Japanese Cherry. Do you have any ideas why this may have happened? We had a mild winter and dry spring.

Our previously very healthy Dragon's Eye Pine suddenly turned brown with only a few pine needles that are green. There are new cones on many branches. What do you think is going on? Should we water the tree? My husband has not turned the sprinklers yet!
Curious why - when I am thawing my frozen mini peppers in the microwave, after just 10 seconds their stems burst into flames. These are the bagged mini peppers that I buy at the grocery store and freeze to keep them from going to waste. This happens nearly every time I pop a couple of them in the microwave on 10-20 seconds. When I have thawed the peppers from our own garden, they never do this - which leads us to think maybe the store bought peppers are coated with something that causes their stems to snap and burst into flames.
I purchased huckleberry plants through the U of I. Planted them and they came back this spring and were looking good. Leafed out and then all of a sudden, some of the leaves are turning red, no new leaves and I'm worried they are not doing well and maybe I did something wrong. I gave them Blueberry food from Garden's Alive, water them and take good care of them. Any suggestions as to what is going on?
Can I peel/slice peaches one day and can them (whole peaches and peach salsa) the next?
