Someone help! I'm a renter in zone 7 and my landlord cut down a pine tree for me that was threatening to topple. Problem is, it was "sheltering" one side of a large holly. That side is pretty much dead, and it appears to have a mildew (or some white coating) problem. My mom suggested cutting out all the bottom branches so that the tree could get more air - is this a good idea? And how do I get rid of the nasty mildew? [wavey]

Wonder if you have scale. Does it look like short little white lines? It's an insect.

So I just checked a bit more and what was white earlier in the season is black now, maybe as the organism dies off it darkens? Also on the backs of some of the leaves a very short very straight little white lines. Like an egg deposit or something.
Any advice? [scaredy]
