What type of tree is this?

Hello, A friend of mine sent this photo to me; she and I are both stumped (no pun intended!) about what type of tree it is. To my eyes, the leaves are narrowly lanceolate, finely serrated on the edges, and are opposite of each other. The photo was taken not far from the Adirondacks, from what I unde...

Re: More Troubling News about Neonicotinoid Insecticides

I'm curious to see whether the late Dr. Scott Costa's MycoMax formulation--something that has been called a "whey-based fungal micro-factory", will be mass marketed to help with adelgid suppression. A few months ago, it appears that the trademark application for this fungal product had been approved...

eastern hemlock needle tea

Just curious about something: I've read somewhere that people have made tea from hemlock twigs. It's something I've never done, and would like to try, since there are still some tsuga trees alive in my area. But what if, for example, I was in a park where hemlock trees had been chemically treated? W...

Re: Tree health questions

Ed,

I'll take pictures of both trees by the end of the week and I'll post them so you'll have a better idea.

Tree health questions

Had a couple of questions for y'all, as I'm a novice in the area of tree knowledge: 1) Is mossy growth on the trunk and base of a tree an indication of the vascular health of the tree itself? 2) Why would the trunk of a tree bulge out from all sides about 5 to 6 inches off of the ground, then mainta...

spider mites

I've been reading some articles about eastern hemlock trees that have experienced outbreaks of spider mites after having been treated with imidacloprid. My question is, are spider mite outbreaks absolutely inevitable after such treatments? Are mite populations on such trees boosted by other conditio...

Re: Hemlock needle question

Thanks Will!

I've seen rust exactly like this on other evergreens in higher altitudes, now that I'm thinking about it....
