    Is fireblight treatable? (once heavily established)

    Thanks ill read that. I went through everything I could find from CSU but they didn't have much to say other than approved treatments.

    Is fireblight treatable? (once heavily established)

    Yeah Ive been telling people to wait and see. Definitely don't want to remove trees unless its needed but I would like to help the trees in any way possible. It seems every apple tree in Lafayette has fireblight on every branch but at least the crabapples seem to be slightly more resistant.

    Is fireblight treatable? (once heavily established)

    Yeah generally we remove trees when fireblight gets real bad im just wondering if anyone has every "cured" a tree with sprays/injections. The hail storm opened up many wounds on the new growth of the trees allowing fireblight to enter. Generally it is spread by bees going to sweet ooze created...

    Is fireblight treatable? (once heavily established)

    We had a some hail last spring and pretty much every crabapple and apple in the area has fireblight.

    Importing Chipper from Canada?

    I am looking into buying a new chipper and I have found one in Canada. Has anyone brought one in from Canada? Are there any reasons I should not buy a chipper in another country?

    Advice for compromise vehicle

    I appreciate the advice, the truck only holds 2 yards and yes, when loaded it is way overweight. Those were the tools I had on hand and they made their money. The point is it is a great starter rig and it was overweight every time I used it but it worked just fine, bud.

    Need opinions on Vermeer sc 252

    Confirmed today that the grinder is 10 years newer than the guy I bought it from thought its actually a 2006 not a 1997. So I am not yet regretting my decision

    Need opinions on Vermeer sc 252

    yes, I have used many grinders. Although magnum is the least powerful of all I have used I still have a great appreciation for its ability to grind efficiently (not big stumps). Only reason i used the magnum on a 36" stump was because it was in a raised bed in the far corner of a backyard.
