Saving my tree

I have a river birch clump, 4 trunks 2- 2.5" dia. about 15' tall. It was planted 5 years ago by a landscaping company who spread black plastic around the tree and covered the area with rocks. The top of the trees now have lost most of their leaves and under the plastic many roots are exposed. Is there any way to save the tree?

Autumn brilliance sericeberry

Hello,

I noticed that some of the bark on the branches of my autumn brilliance serviceberry tree are splitting and creating large wounds. I'm hoping this won't affect the lifespan of the tree significantly. Moldy the affected branches are all on one side of the tree. The same thing happened last year. The top growth does not appear to be affected. I have included some pictures for reference.

Hydrangea Plant....

I received a beautiful "blue blooms" hydrangea. It had four large perfect blooms. Because it was too cold outside I kept it in the house for about 3 weeks before moving it outdoors. During that time the blooms turned brown on the edges. What is causing that? What do I do now? I thought I cared for them appropriately as far as watering and keeping them in a good environment. Disregard the "Image upload" below. I was not able to download a photo.

Black Hills Spruce sick/dying

I bought this house 7 years ago and had 5 black hills spruce in the backyard. I removed a spindly dead one yesterday but on all of them have been removing dead lower branches the last several years. There is a lot of shade--big ash to the east and south and river birch to the west. I did add several inches of mulch about 3 years ago. Anything I can do to improve likelihood of saving remainder? On the left of 7733 you can see the best of the spruce and on the right part of the 3 river birch. There is a large slope behind me from which I get a lot of rain water and behind that is where there's a large ash that shades formic of the year. 7730 shows a close up of damaged branch. Thank you for any assistance.

Grass problems under a tree

How can I get grass to grow under my tree? I have put shade grass seed down a couple of times. It sprouts but doesn’t thicken up. Should I just forget the grass and mulch around the tree.

What is this plant?

I have this plant spreading through my garden amongst ferns and hostas. It has been showing up for 3 years and is spreading similarly to a 'snow on the mountain' with tendrils spreading out everywhere. It's getting pretty invasive and I am removing a lot of it, but just wonder what it might be? Thank you, Linda, Rochester
