First, try to tighten the bolts securing the tank to the bowl. If that does not stop the leak, you can buy replacement parts at your local home improvement or hardware store. Before you go to the store, count how many bolts secure the tank to the bowl so you know which repair kit to buy.

Hello Eileen, W/D here.
Palms will reabsorb some of their nutrients when fronds are shed, even over winter. If possible, you should let the ugly fronds go, and allow the trunk to take back what's stored in the frond stems. When they become brown, or less green, or droop, they can be pruned. This is usually found with the lower fronds. If upper fronds exhibit these symptoms, it is usually from the effects of winter, but the same rules apply, except that you can trim partial fronds to get rid of the brown leaves.
The acid test for a palm is, if there are shoots in the middle of the canopy protruding, to pull on them firmly, but not aggressively. If the shoots pull out easily, the palm is probably dead. Some winters are more brutal than others, and palms take the worst of them. We double-cover our palms, and place lights inside of the covering that we make, and the larger ones have made it over winter now for about 5 years. I have used incandescent Christmas lights wrapped around the trunk and hung in the canopies, then covered and it worked well too. One friend slaved his Christmas lights to his pool pump control panel, only to lose his palms. Seems that he was using LED lights, which put out no heat. Queen palms have died in droves this, and last year, as have unprotected Robellinis. Washingtonians and Pindos have fared better. If you live in a coastal zone, you still need to cover and keep your palms warm through the worst of winter. We have used fitted sheets on the smaller canopies to contain the fronds, then covered that with plastic tarps, weighted down on the sides to form a mini greenhouse, and it works pretty well, but it's inconvenient. With spring here, there will be a lot of new outdoor umbrellas purchased, and the old ones will be pitched. We already have picked one up from a neighbor, and will erect it over one of the palms, then cover it as described. The thinking here that it should be much easier (and quicker) to protect the palms via this method.
As for the fungus noted, try light applications of a fungicide, but check first with a local nurseryman to see what works best in your area.
Hope that this is of some help.
Best regards, (and please rate this solution), --W/D--

ARBORVITAES Have brown leaves in center of plant and small cones on each tip of leaves at top of plant and they don't have new growth. Is there a treatment for this or should I just get rid of them.

The small cones on the tip of the leaves are new growth buds. Leave it a month before making a decision. Trim out the brown leaves now.

I have a friend that has a dying tree,that he really wants to save. How?

He should contact an arborist. The tree may have a form of blight and not be salvageable. Or it might be insects or something else. It may be too far to save.

A local arborist will know the best course of action in your area as all zones are different.

Many pine tree species are fast growers.

Moving a large tree like that is very, very expensive because a crane and large truck are required. It can also be easily damaged. It is much easier to use an artificial one which is light and can be stored and re-used.

Write to the mayor in the cities you think might be interested and the Mayor's office will pass it to the appropriate member of staff to consider and reply. They are typically short of money and you will be very unlikely to get a positive reply.

What can I do about the cherry tree I have that is losing leaves one branch at a time and is dripping with a dark red sap like substance. How can a fix it?

First thing to do is check for insects. You may need a magnification glass. Look for spider webs on it. These are caused by aphids though, not spiders. If you find them, you need to spray with an insecticide that does not poison any fruit. You can use soapy water too and or cedar oil to get rid of aphids. Other diseases of cherry trees include fungal and bacterial infections. These are harder to treat.
