    Mid summer trunk Chop?

    Hello everyone. I have this real nice Cork Bark elm that I really like. The only thing that's an eye sore to me is a slight reverse taper on the lower part of the trunk. Would like to cut on red line. What do you guys think about mid summer trunk chopping? Thanks, Steve

    What's wrong with my Crape Myrtle

    Hello. I used a systemic granule insecticide. Someone told me that this was caused by overwatering. If you notice these blisters have water in them.

    Chinese elm loosing green leaves

    What would cause green leaves dropping on a Chinese elm? I brush the foliage with my hand and leaves just fall, all green. I'm sure it's not over watered or under watered.

    Tips if trident maple turning beige.

    I have a trident maple and now I'm noticing browning of the tips of a bunch of the leaves. Can anyone tell me what this could be. The tree did great last season and this year it doesn't look too hot. It has not been repotted. It's getting about 6 hours of sun.
