    As you can see from these images, the tree has healthy looking branches, but the bark itself seems to be dying. It had some dead branches cut off last year, but I'd like to proactively help this tree get back to itself. Zero experience here, and I don't know the type of tree this is. What steps...

    Hi, I have a two very large beautiful trees in my backyard, and one had been secreting some type of resin from multiple areas around it. If I could get some advice to see if it's normal for this tree to be in this condition or if I need to have someone come in and help it. I have noticed a very...

    I am a homeowner (not a plumber) so I apologize in advance if I use any wrong terminology. I have had a recurring issue for years with tree roots getting into my sewer line. The line is PVC but a thin PVC. Last night the roots clogged the pipes again. Today I hired a new plumber (seems...

    The root is in the first photo in the red circle. To the left of the circle is concrete that held a wood fence post. I'm still in the process of breaking up the concrete and may need to cut the root. Is the root part of the tree in the green rectangle? Is it okay to cut the root without...

This year, we're dealing with tiny black specks on the leaves (I think they're aphids?), and tiny caterpillars. We did not apply any type of insecticide during its dormant period because...

    About 3 years ago I bought my first house. Nice 1950's era stone rancher. Unfortunately it came with some nice, 1950's era pine trees. My guess is that the original owner planted them on the property line and never expected them to get as large as they now are. Several of the pine trees are...

    As Spring unfolds many start thinking about outdoor type projects. i.e. landscaping, porches, decks, patios, retaining walls, ponds, water features, new trees, shrubs, etc. Keep in mind however, and be extra cautious around septic tanks, drain fields, leach fields, and sewer and septic...

    We live in Arkansas. Since I bought this house I have been unable to grow grass, even though I have tried many times. Any information on the best approach is appreciated. Also, I would love some ideas to give the front a 21st century look. I so appreciate your help in this and look forward to...

    I have an ancient Douglas Fir about 20 feet from my house. I have a full basement and the tree has not caused any damage to my 70 year old basement walls or floor, although a sidwalk nearer the tree is cracked and lifted about 6 inches. A young Douglas Fir is now growing about 8 feet from the...

    I have never owned a septic before but I recently purchased a house that has a septic system. I need advice. The law here in MA requires the buyer to pay for a septic inspection prior to sale. The state certifies who can perform the inspection and stipulates what items must be inspected before...
