Elk or deer rubbing bark off 15-20 foot tall young hemlock tree to remove fuzz from antlers????

There is a brand new area where some deer or elk has nearly rubbed off an area 6 inches tall x 4 inches wide 4 feet off the ground from my 15-20 foot young hemlock. Will other elk or deer come and do the same? Would a motion sensor that turns on a sprinkler deter them? Thanks, Liz Freer

Lace Bug on Azalea

Hello! I have two large azaleas that are key to my front entrance landscape. The largest one has pale green foliage and three years ago realized it was getting lace bug damage. I was able to keep it relatively in control with two sprays of soap in the spring. But this year that wasn't adequate and a new infestation this fall is worse than I've seen. The other azalea, a small leafed, dark green variety, now also is showing damage. Using horticultural soaps and oils is preferred but doing so on two large shrubs several times a season is going to get challenging. What's the latest on control of lace bug on azalea? Is a neem oil soil drench really effective? What are the least toxic chemical pesticides available to homeowners? Thanks for the update!

Preventive Treatment for Pear Scab and Fireblight

My Bosc pear tree has developed a severe Scab infection. My neighbor next door has a young Bartlett pear which we understand is susceptible to Fireblight. I have read that Bordeaux Mix spray is the best organic treatment for these diseases. However, I am not finding it sold here in Coos Bay. What is the best organic treatment for our pear trees. We live uphill from the Coos River in winter zone 8b. Thank you, Cynthia Medlin

Is this smoke damage or a disease in my Rising Sun Redbud?

Hello, I noticed this process happening on my Rising Sun Redbud in the last 4 weeks. I left for a trip late August and the tree looked healthy. I returned in the midst of the smoke and noticed these changes with the plant. I live in the city of Portland. Thank you for your help!
