I had to cut down my peach tree due to a widespread infection from the trunk up. Almost broke my heart. Since Virginia gets notoriously humid in summer, should I treat the soil with something like liquid copper so it doesn't come back or spread to the neighbors? Any advice is welcome!
Thanks,

Hi Sam,

You'll be hearing from me soon. I'm definitely intrigued! And apparently not too far away...

I have someone coming from the Department of Forestry to see if I have the emerald ash borer on my land. I have quite a few ash trees; my prize tree is at least 100 feet tall and gorgeous. If I do have these bugs, I will do anything to avoid using pesticides, so my question is, does anyone have any thoughts on maybe using Sepp Holzer's bone salve on the trees instead?
Thanks!

Thanks in advance!



I purchased a tool called a Claw 20 years ago, and it's been a godsend. It has two handles up top, and four curved prongs at the base. Place it on the ground and step on it to get a good grip on your weed, then twist back and forth. Even weeds with taproots come right up!
