What tree is it? What wrong with the tree?Comments (3)it is a conifer ... and they hold their leaves/needles.. from one to 3 years ... the oldest leaves are interior ... and as they age.. and get shaded by newer growth ... they yellow and fall off ... in snow country.. it can be increased significantly by a bad winter .. of which. seattle doesnt have ... just fyi .. or severe drought the summer before.. which again.. you wouldnt have ... it is entirely normal ... when your current growth tips yellow ... and then brown.. is when you have problems to think or worry about ... ken btw: if you track from the tip.. in toward the trunk.. the bark changes per year ... so you could probably SEE/estimate .... how old those leaves are ......See More
Help idk what tree plant it isComments (3)Probably a Dracena marginata, a common houseplant. The picture shows a bit of green at the bottom--is that the same plant? If so, cut the long stem down to within an inch of the new growth. If it is in a dark corner, it probably is in the process of dying. Move it to a brighter (but not direct sun) spon, give it some water (unless its soil is already wet), and it should come back nicely....See More
What tree has the most invasive roots?Comments (5)Since the largest living organism on earth is a 108 acre grove of aspen trees in Utah that are essentially all the same tree, all connected by a single root system I'd have to put that at the top of my list. However my personal experience with invasive roots has been limited to a corkscrew willow. And a cherry or two that insist on erupting with root suckers at a distance from the parent tree. Nothing that I have intentionally planted :-))...See More
What trees to plant?Comments (22)Deer sample plants to find out if they are possible foods. So that there is some damage even when particular kinds are not on the existing menu*. With each new generation of fawns seeming likely to try a lot of things. Otherwise what is eaten varies with weather conditions, with heavy snowfalls producing pressures to find browse that are not there the rest of the time. Cottontail rabbits will also browse kinds like small conifers and deciduous shrubs during snow, clip conifer branches for nesting material. And during the rut bucks strip bark and branches from accessible young trees whether they are kinds that are browsed or not - the only sure guarantee against all of the preceding is effective fencing. Otherwise the effort, money and time put into plantings is then left subject to whatever the involved animals happen to do. *One day I saw an adult doe who was standing and looking around with her head near where some bigleaf maple leaves were hanging down from above pick and eat them. As though her response to the situation was since the leaves were right there anyway she might as well have some. Even though most of the time this and other maples are never browsed here....See More
