I posted a reply on your "part 2" before I saw this one, but thanks for your article.
I strongly feel that Dow, Union Carbide, and Monsanto have more than proven themselves to be utterly untrustworthy in all regards.
Once in a great while we get heavy areas of black widows in our back yard, and maybe one time a year I spray a little bug juice (no doubt a Dow product or one of the other equally guilty parties) in the immediate area, but never around flowering plants. And fertilizers that can benefit one plant can damage another one.
Redwoods have a dual assault against them. Three dry years are damaging them badly too. They may not be "native" but I prefer them to the dry, hot-burning oak and eucalyptus found in our area.

Which Dow chemical product kills redwood trees? I am not quite clear on the name of this dangerous product.

Update Redwood trees to sr resident ,derek, speed zone southern, snapshot granular for planted and bark areas. Lonyrel they put on the golf courses is very bad. Look them up and read the label. If it says legume, they consist of many trees also which they don't list. I'll leave to links one of the milestone herbicide guidelines which is what Caltrans sprays up and on highways leguminous trees are legumes. All these landscape companies city of Pleasanton, LA RPD in Livermore are all spraying around all the trees over applying it and killing everyone in front of pine valley middle school 7trees gone . Pleasanton sports grounds they just applied a bunch snapshot for the big rains and oh boy they are burning up all here's the links are going to bed.Web Link
