For trees that get black leaf, when is the best time to spray them with the Hi-Yield Fungicide? Before or after they get their leaves?

Hi, I have an Autumn Blaze Mable (planted it about six years ago). I snapped a small 2" twig off of it earlier and noticed water coming out of the tree where the twig was broken off. Is this a bad thing? Is there something I need to do to protect the tree now?

Hi, I recently visited your store and purchased a 15 gal Ginkgo tree. How would you recommend safely removing it from the pot to plant? Also, what are your recommendations for proper planting, watering, fertilizing and tying/securing it? I also purchased a small golden delicious apple tree. Would the recommendations be different for this tree? Thank you!

I have just moved in to a home with mature landscaping but no fruit trees. I would like to plant as many fruit and nut trees as I can. Is there any advantage to planting them in the fall or will spring planting be just as good?

In considering an oak or beech, are there any varieties that conform to the following requirements: * Resistant to verticillium wilt * Don't have shallow roots systems that may heave sidewalks (10 ft away) or grow into the foundation of a home (20 ft away) * Don't make a huge mess * Are strong * Thrive in full sun * Attractive fall colors I had almost decided on the Bur Oak which seemed to be rugged, but I then learned that it had an extensive shallow root system in addition to a tap root and wasn't sure if that would cause problems. I also learned that it doesn't have an attractive fall color. I read that Pin Oaks have shallow root systems that could cause problems. I've also read that most varieties of oak, other than Bur, are more disease prone and less tolerant of the climate here. With all of the information on the web I'm kind of lost and hope you can help me. Thank you!

I have a globe locust tree...it is HUGE. I am starting to get branches breaking because it is so full and sometimes the wind aids in that. Is this a tree that can be pruned and how do you suggest doing so? I am thinking of calling a professional to do it this year in the fall, but wouldn't mind doing it myself if I got the right advice...what do you suggest?

I'm looking for a good hardy shade tree, a replacement for a crimson king maple that has recently died from verticillium wilt. I'm looking for something that I can place where the other tree is currently located and is not overly susceptible to verticillium wilt. Also something that isn't going to cause root problems with my lawn. I'm considering oak and beach, and some maples. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks! -Will

I want to plant a few trees along an east fence to block out the view. They would need to be tall, but narrow and be able to be planted as close to the fence as possible without damaging it or the neighbor behind. The strip of land to be planted is fairly narrow, so I want to minimize taking up too much space but still be able to block out the neighbors house some. I would like to plant 3-4 trees possibly and I am guessing the width is probably around 60ft to work with (length wise) and width from fence to patio is approximately 12-15 ft. What do you suggest?

Is is possible to plant a Zelkova Elm and a Gingko within 20 ft of each other? Will it cause slower growth or could it kill either of the trees?

I have a Satomi Kousa dogwood that has started to drop its leaves. It has been in the ground for 2+ years now. It has done very well until the last month. The leaves look green and the twigs are also green when scratched. There doesn't seem to be a problem with insects or a herbicide around the tree. It has started growing new leaves again. Any reasons why this could happen? I'm guessing it's the heat.
