I cut the central branch of a Chitalpa, and realized almost immediately it was a mistake.

There was a plague on my pine tree years ago. The plague ran to my apricot, flowers, peach tree. Know it is effecting my FIG tree. What can I use to save my fig tree?

PNM workers need this training. They butcher trees regularly
Lynda Garvin
48:04
you can spray alcohol on the blades to sterilize (clean blades first of any plant residue. You can also use a 1 part bleach to 9 parts water. This can corrode your blades. Better to spay with alcohol - dries fast, wont bleach your clothes.

Is it recommended to paint pruned areas?
Lynda Garvin
52:31
No not recommended to cover the pruned area with anything. The tree will seal the cut itself.
Dael Goodman

Assume prune water shoots/sprouts (on apple tree) anytime?
Lynda Garvin
53:12
Yes, can cut water sprouts anytime.

Is there a guideline for identifying what is the outside rim of the collar ?
Lynda Garvin
01:00:43
That's a tough one, observation of the notch where the branch attaches, there may be a slight bulge or faint ridges in the bark close to that point. On some trees it's easier to see than others. You don't want to cut into where it attaches to the trunk or main branch but close. It's one of those things you need to practice and be observant. Easier to see in a live demonstration. Normally the pruning tool or saw's blade width will keep you from cutting too close to the trunk or larger branch.
Lynn Witz
01:01:32
Does bark inclusion happen with branches OTHER than the central stems?
Lynda Garvin
01:03:37
Need to ask Marisa about that. I've made a note.

How do you know if a tree is planted too deep?
Sophia Mims
01:06:01
Should the grass under the cherry tree be cleared out?
carol hardin
01:07:27
I would do a thinning cut on the right branch
Lynda Garvin
01:08:19
Planted too deep? You should see the root flare at or just above the soil line. https://aces.nmsu.edu/pubs/_h/H420/welcome.html#:~:text=Plant%20the%20tree%20no%20deeper,soil%20before%20filling%20the%20hole.

Who can advise me on switching my Belen orchard from flood irrigation to something more water efficient?
Lynda Garvin
01:11:50
Sofia - grass under cherry tree. Are you talking about turf? If so, Is the tree on an irrigation schedule the same as the grass. If that is true the grass can compete for water and nutrients with the cherry and not get enough water. Trees and turf have different water requirements.
Dael Goodman
01:12:49
IF a tree is planted too deep, ok to excavate yearly?
Sophia Mims
01:14:41
The cherry tree was planted on the lawn. When I hand water them with a garden hose, I water everything all the same time, so there is no separate schedule. I do notice that the grass under the tree are much higher than the rest of the lawn.
Lynda Garvin
01:14:47
If the tree is small enough that you can dig it out without destroying too many roots, yes. Back fill with native soil under the root are until the root flare is visible at the surface of the soil. Bigger tree, remove soil away from the trunk until the root flare is visible.
Marika Pineda
01:16:02
Sorry, tuned in late. If my tree has fire blight, is it a goner? The deformed bark is on the main trunk and branches.
Lynda Garvin
01:16:58
Sofia - The grass is probably enjoying the shade of the tree, in our hot climate and strong sun. You can remove the turf abound the root zone and replace it with mulch this will improve water infiltration.
Lynda Garvin
01:18:24
Marika send a photo of the tree to Marisa or your local Master Gardener chapter if you are in Sandoval, Bernalillo, or Santa Fe County. You can also send me a photo at lgarvin@nmsu.edu
Sophia Mims

Thank you Lynda :)
marcyloomis
01:19:19
Do you drop the branch from cuts 1 and 2 before going in to cut outside the collar?
Lynda Garvin
01:19:23
Dael - yes, remove the soil building up over the root flare as needed.

Thank you, Marissa
Lynda Garvin

Marcyloomis - you want to remove the weight from the branch before you make the final cut at the collar.
Anita Amstutz
01:20:31

When pruning roses, I was taught years ago to seal the cut with Elmers glue. Do you know if this is still recommended or if this no longer a good idea?
Kate Sweet

I have just found out about these classes, how can I access the ones that already happened?

I goofed and pruned my Apricot severely last Fall. It has very few blooms. Will it recover this year?
Sophia Mims
01:25:27
I have an old big pine tree in the yard, last winter the strong wind broke one huge branch and it's not a clean break, it ripped some of the bark below collar. Anything else I can do to help the tree, even though the damage is already done?
Jennifer Espen
01:25:32
With re: to roses that was what I was taught. That is was protection for some type of pest.
