Do you know how to look for and spot hypoxylon canker?
No, but sure a google search would show me
Again I am not an Arbortist but I do work with some high value trees and consult with one regularly on many concerns.

Do you use Phosphorus fertilizer? If you do that could stop the Mycorrhiza relationship with the tree roots system. May want to look at some soil injection around the tree and back off the Phosphorus.
Would 10-10-10 count? I spread a 40 Lb bag around the roots last fall?


God created man, man plants grass, fertilized and watered the grass to watch it grow. Man cut grass and this confused God; in his infinite wisdom where did he go wrong? Why would man work, plant, water and once it grew cut it down just to see the process repeat.

Then God created Women
