It is common to scratch bark on such a tree Post the bulletin

A: The bark of the tree on your Scottish pine branches is common. In fact, one of the most attractive features of the Scottish pine is its impressive, copper-orange bark. The attractive bark has a rough texture as it ages, which is what you see.

Although I noticed in the photos, he can see something unrelated. Juniper is being stored on some branches or stems and should be removed from wounds or openings.

One reader recently noticed that the Scottish pine tree has a lot of loose bark. Special for the forum

If you see sapwood or other wood chips in the trunk, the juice may come from these openings. Excessive movement of these birds, starvation in close proximity to the wells, and the flow of water and nutrients into the tree can be detrimental to the tree’s health.

Q: A professional friend suggested that gypsum can benefit from clay soil. Do you have any information on the use of gypsum and its potential benefits? – Judy F.

A: Gypsum has been extensively studied in North Dakota to determine its impact on the soil. Research literature Gypsum may be useful in treating difficult soils in sodium-rich areas.

Gypsum does not improve the performance or texture of heavy clay soils, such as the Red River Valley. I wish, but unfortunately this does not work.

Gypsum differs significantly from other parts of the country from soil makeup and chemistry in the upper midwestern region. Your soil is high in calcium, which is a major component of gypsum, and explains why gypsum is not widely recommended for our regional soils, except in areas where tests have shown that sodium has a problem.

Q: I have a lot of harvest years like Esther and Mothers. I can’t drink much, but should I start doing this? Also, should tulip bulbs be watered when planting this fall? – Linda M.

A: To help the sprouts grow normally, I drink as many years as possible during the growing season. Prolonged drought could reduce the flowering of many Aster, Mothers, and other spring flowers, as they are already worried about their energy and bud growth in this hot and dry summer climate.

Deep diving helps once or twice a week. Covering the floor with 3 to 5 inch pieces of wood will help keep the soil cool and moisturized.

Tulips and other harvest bulbs should be watered immediately after planting in September or early October. These bulbs will take root this fall, and moist soil will be needed. Light straw, crushed bark, leaves, or untreated grass clippings help keep moisture. If tulips are planted in dry soil, the growth next spring may be disappointing.
