That's a dilema, for sure. Have you spoken with the Township? That should be your first step. Also, have you had an Arborist examine the trees to see if something else may be a contributing factor?

Yes, Hostas do prefer to be out of the direct sun for that very reason. Also, Hostas also get a nice blue color from proper soil pH (But that can be for another Blog Post!)

Good Point about herbicide damage - but I am talking about INTERNAL browning - the end needles remaining green. If an entire tree starts to turn brown you should consult a professional.

Great question! I plan on doing an article on the EAB. The answer to your question depends on what the planting area is like and what you expect from the tree. My first rule of tree care is "Right Tree, Right Place". I general, I like the trees in the White Oak group - swamp white oak is a good specimen. (Red Oaks can get Bacterial Leaf Scorch).

Without knowing some more information - health of tree, size of the rootball etc... It is hard to give a definite answer. I general, If you feel you can dig and move a root ball at least 5 times the diameter of the trunk the odds are good the tree will survive. Now is a fine time to transplant; just make sure you continue to water the tree if we have dry weather. The number 1 thing a transplant needs is water.
I Hope that helps!
