      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Crabapple Tree problems

Recommended Posts

Planted a crabapple tree last year and it recently lost all leaves on mmost of the tree. The chutes at the base of the tree are still growing well. Should I trim the chutes off or leave it alone until next season.?

Did the leaves turn yellow or anything? If the leaves were yellow with black spots, its most likely a condition called apple scab. Its a fungal disorder that effects the leaves back in the early spring when they are just popping out.

Its very common and very easy to prevent. Unfortunately, you have to prevent it in the spring with fungicide treatments when the leaves are just popping out. If the tree is small enough you can do it by yourself. Check out a nursery or garden store for info.

No, they budded out and got the leaves, then they all started dropping off, then the chutes started at the base up to bottom branches and have been growing fairly rapidly.

Thats my problem with Flowering Crabapples. Everyone loves the spring flower, but most varieties have so many disease, fungus and other issues. Last year a bunch of them in my neighborhood defoliated in July.

If your going to buy a new crabapple, make sure you buy a variety this is disease and pest resistant.

Crabapples and other trees get a very similar fungal disorder. The leaves come out fine in the spring stay green and healthy until mid-late summer then all of a sudden they start getting spots, turn yellow and drop off. It looks like October in the yard, but its only August on the calender.

This happens with apples, oaks, ash and a few others. The oaks and ash get anthracnose (not anthrax) but its very similar in its infection.

You won't know if your tree is infected until its too late to treat. To prevent it you need to spray in the spring. Timing is somewhat critical, but easy to do.

Apple Scab treatments were out largest and most most common treatment at the company I worked for.
