Tilted pine tree?

Hi - we moved into this house 2 years ago with 3 50ft pine trees in the front. One of the pines is significantly tilted to one side , i have not trimmed it but it has all the large/heavy limbs on the side it is tilted, the other side has very few limbs at all(not sure If precious owner trimmed because they got in way of other pine trees). Anything suggested for this tilted pine? Cut off a few larger limbs to reduce the weight on the side it is tilted to? Thank You

ditch flood irrigation and berms

Hello. I live in Berthoud and have ~ 2 acres. Once or twice a year, I get irrigation water that runs down a ditch and I put up temp damns and flood my fields. I get 30 inches of water in a 24 hour period and it is a lot. The field is relatively flat with a low point in the middle. Mostly the water runs down to the low point and flows to the goat barn and shelter and floods the area in front. I was thinking maybe some berms would be helpful to direct the water away from the livestock dry lot and maybe direct the water to areas currently not getting any water. Are their any resources on the best way to build berms here in Colorado? Would it be best to plant grass on the berm or should I fence off the area and no some xeriscaping?

Thanks,
Kris

how to kill a Paradise Tree

I have a very old, very big Paradise Tree that has been a constant source of irritation. But now it is sending out so many baby trees all through my pasture and lawn, that I am spending a small fortune trying to keep them under control. I want to kill the parent tree, but an arborist told me that it would only make the baby plants more pervasive. What is the solution?

Can I build a natural swimming pool that looks like a pond?

Natural swimming pools may be lined with plastic to retain the water. The filtration of the natural pond would consist of plants such as cattail to filter out impurities. 1/3 of the pond would be dedicated to such purifying plants and the rest would be for recreational use for the household.

catalpa dying?

I have a 5-year-old northern catalpa tree that is browning and I don't know what is wrong with it. I hate to lose it and I'd like to know what is wrong with it and what if anything I can do about it.
Not far down the street is a catalpa that looks quite healthy so doubt it's the environment.
