    You can clear out the photos if you like.

    If you think a photo of the one across the street would help then post the photos.

    I still would like to see what is going on with that root.

    Here yu go, now like I said this is across the street and its in a wooded lot, last year all my Oaks did this which is why I don't think it's the roots. This has to be some fungus or disease in the area?

    Now I got a new problem, the only one of the three dogwoods across the front that was doing well, now looks sick and leaves are turning brown like the other two did.

    The root issue is pretty easy to fix compared to http://www.ca.uky.edu/caps/sudden_oak_death.asp

    I sure hope it's not that.

    Ok so you want me to dig some of the dirt away to see more of the root in the area just where the other tree was cut?

    Or rake back more of the pine bark all the way around the tree and get pics?

    Or both?

    Both would be better as the root flare is still covered a little.

    Mostly interested in seeing how that root is healing.

    One way to do this, is to use the water hose with a spray nozzle, it washes away the dirt and there is little risk of damage to the roots.

    Just do not flood the neighbors yard.. :laugh:
