Occasionally we post questions from our readers.
This reader has asked around and hasn’t been able to find anyone who knows what’s wrong with her trees. If you can help, please leave a comment below.
“These are my pine trees that have turned yellow. This is the third year they’ve been yellow. I’d hate to have to cut them down but they have become rather unsightly. No one seems to know what is wrong with them. The needles are holding tight. There is no powdery residue. Hopefully you have some idea or know someone who might. I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.”
We also have a returning question from last week regarding transplanting roses.
I know there are lots of gardeners out there who have transplanted roses and can respond to this question. Don’t be shy; just tell us what worked for you.
Please offer any advice or tips that you have found useful through the years and leave a comment below. Thanks!
When you have gardening questions, you can call the Master Gardeners with Cornell Cooperative Extension Erie County at (716) 652-5400. These knowledgeable volunteers are available from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays. You can also email them at email@example.com. There are helpful Cornell Cooperative Extension offices in other counties, too. Find contact information here for your county’s Cooperative Extension office.
You can also stop at a garden center to get great information. Check out our advertisers, click on their ad and you’ll be taken to their website or Facebook page to get their hours, address and other important information.
Turning to Cornell Cooperative Extension or your local garden center is probably the fastest route for getting your questions answered.
However, if you have a question and you’d like to get a wide range of opinions, email the question to me and I’ll pose it to my readers in an upcoming issue.
This article stirred a great discussion about yellowing trees. Jeanine asked this follow-up question in the comments section:
I also have a flowering tree, not quite sure what it is, but it’s not doing well. I’ve trimmed it down, removed the dead branches and dug down a little and put compost down. It stands about six feet tall. Any suggestions what I can do to revive it?
You’ll see the responses below. Here’s a photo of the tree in question.
