Losing tree to Phytopthora--what to plant?
We are losing our 10 year old white alder due to phytopthora. It is planted in our lawn, and once we get it removed, I would like to plant another tree to provide shade in front of our house. My question is...what can I plant now that won't get this disease? I live on the central coast in Paso Robles, CA. Any tips on what tree and if there are ways I can treat the soil once the alder is out?
