Dying aspen tree grove

We've had a small aspen tree Cluster/grove in our home and it's been healthy for a long time. Recently we've discovered babies popping up around the house. This year however, the grove trees seem to be dying. The branches grow no leaves leaves are drying up, and there's one tree in particular that's growing small leaves at the top, while the bottom is dying. There's also some spots where sap is oozing out. I didn't have enough space to insert photos, however. What's happening?

I have a multitude of flying insects swarming around blue spruce including flies & bees since mid April 2020. Cannot identify all. Tree was planted year ago & appears healthy with new growth. Might I have aphids or other problem? What should i spray to remedy issue?

Pinon Pine Pitch Mass Borer

I have 6 pinon pine all which have various levels of attack with pitch mass borer; one is much worse than the others. My neighbor recommended "Viper" by Martin's - it is a cypermethrin. They have used it for past 3 years with some success. My question is: 1) is this OK to use, 2) what are best times of year and 3) frequency, 4) amount of spraying.

This weekend, I tried to scrape the sap away and find a bore hole and stick a sharp object into it. Today I sprayed the trunks of the trees and branches. I live at 6500" in Albuquerque, NM.

swampy soil smell

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I have a house with a sunken shower that has been leaking under the concrete slab for many years. I have broken out and removed the concrete slab around this area and removed about 4' of dirt. I have let it dry out and I cannot get rid of the smell inside the house. Is there a possibility that the smell has penetrated the walls and insulation also? I cannot sell or rent this house out until I correct the problem. I took soil samples and mold was found in the soil... Please any guidance would be appreciated.

I cannot eat wheat of soy products. Is there a recipe to prepare bouillon using
basic ingredients? I am allergic and cannot eat purchased bouillon. Thanks, Helen Flesner

ponderosa pine...

A nice young ponderosa pine was overly pruned, IMHO, and the amount of sap leaking from the
cuts is awful. The lower branch now is drying out with most needles turning brown.
It seems all the trees sap is leaking from all these cuts on this 20ft-25ft tree.

This is so sad. Thanks.
