    What is your growing zone? Seems you may be on the edge of their growing zone and you’re seeing that effect on them.

    My crew is going to be working on a maple tree inBuffalo and it has poison ivy or poison oak right up all the way 30 feet. what should we do before w

    Tyvek suit, rub yourself with the technical stuff before hand and immediately wash with a rag after. Change cloths and put old cloths in a garbage bag (just wear something you don’t care about and throw out in all honesty)

    Today....

    Nice. I’ve always liked the idea of gifting a tree after a removal.

    Possible dieing maple? Need expert opinion.

    I’ll be hopefully experimenting with that hypothesis on a group of about 6 cherries that were all planted too deeply. At least three have significant girdling roots, planning on hopefully having a few controls that are untreated.

    Possible dieing maple? Need expert opinion.

    On the topic of girdling roots. have any of you experimented with PGRs to slow the growth functions while the tree recovers? Slow the decline process enough to help it turn around?

    Soil drench versus trunk injection?

    Urban arboriculture had a peer reviewed paper reevaluating the efficacy of imidicloprid drenches for EAB. I don’t remember the details. for one there’s less off target impact with injections. As well as longer residual and efficacy (2 years for EAB).

    What would you do? I'm a rec climber and want to KEEP my healthy ash tree...

    Check local laws about application of safari without a licensed applicator. You’re probably good to go but here in NY safari is banned, but when it was in use (like many pesticides) it was a restricted use pesticide and you needed an applicators license for it. also utilize the trench technique...

    Lobby to get the city to pay for injections throughout city limits. large street trees like those take a long time to get to that size and are a valuable piece of infrastructure and have an ecological value that may never be replaced.
