Help needed with ancient Family Tree Maker file formats: TRT & IDX

I've inherited some very old Family Tree Maker TRT and IDX files now but find no version that can read them. I'm looking for someone who has an old version of FTM which can read the TRT & IDX files and export the data in the standard GEDCOM format. Please help! [more inside]

cat in tree freezing

We moved yesterday. Our indoor cat hasn't used her litter or food all day. There is something cat-shaped with glowing eyes in a tree in our backyard about 30 ft up. It is below freezing (Arlington MA). What do we do? The local fire department says they don't do cats. I've been on hold with the emergency line for Angell Memorial for 5 min.

interesting tree choices for South Carolina yard?

The very large pecan tree shading our backyard is dying and must go this winter. We're looking for a replacement to be centered in the (1/8 acre or so) backyard. We don't want another shade tree - just a nice tree to anchor the yard. I'm specifically looking for especially odd/unique/interesting options - something that will surprise people. This is in zone 8a and would probably start as a seedling.

Help Me Find Trees & Plants for a NYC Terrace.

I'm looking for a referral to a supplier of quality and reasonably priced evergreen type trees and plants in and around NYC (also LI, NJ, Conn., etc.) This would need to be a store, nursery or garden center that offers delivery to Manhattan. I've been to the "plant district" in the city but I'm interested in researching other alternatives. Looking to purchase in the next two weeks. Thank you.

Downed tree, city in storm aftermath, what to do?

ID this tree

Picture here. The flowers give off a mild, sweet smell and are kinda sticky at the white, hollow ends. The shells on the left open into halves, and those halves are divided in half, so I doubt they are nutshells (unless those nuts come pre-cut into quarters). This all came from a tree with wide green leaves, here in the southeast USA. That's all I remember about it. Any ideas what tree this might be? Any help would be appreciated!

Trees don't carry ID

Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? It came up in one of my raised beds last year, just a single stick with dark red leaves. I left it alone to see what it would turn into. This picture is what it looks like now, and the leaves have turned much more green, although they did come out red again at first. I've never noticed any flowers or fruit on it so far. The very tips of the branches are covered with little green aphids and the occasional ant. I'm trying to decide if I want to cut it down or try to move it, but I've not been able to get a definite ID to help me.

My lawn! My perfect lawn! It's... under attack.

So, about a year and a half ago, we bought a house! Awesome. For the first time, I have a back yard and a front yard and a lawn and... stuff, and I don't know, maybe because I'm old and boring now, I've started to give a crap about making my lawn look nice. Something is really starting to piss me off... [more inside]

Tree ID

What type of tree is this? I'm sure it's quite common, as they're found all over Chicago. There were no old leaves on the ground nearby, and I'm useless at identifying leafless deciduous trees unless they're white and peeling. Thanks.

Help me identify this bee-friendly tree

This tree is taller than our single-story house, has soft brown branches, grows long, skinny, pointy leaves in groups of three, produces bunches of tiny yellow flowers, and is full of bees. It grows very fast. The flowers and leaves don't seem to smell like anything in particular. We're in Los Angeles. The leaves are green year-round, and the tree needs no watering. Here's a pair of photos of the tree and a branch tip. Here's a close up of the flowers. And here's a close up of the underside of the leaves. What is it?

Where can I find a good family tree template online?

I want to create a family tree that includes my grandparents, my parents and their siblings, and all their children (my cousins), and finally my siblings children. If possible I'd also like to include everyone's spouses as well. Ideally I want to be able to include photos, and contact information for each of them. I could certainly try to create this myself but realized someone else has probably done the same thing so I'm hoping I can spare myself the extra work. Can anyone help me with this request?

Tree Cutting

How sketchy is this? And how overpriced? We have a big tree in our yard from Hurricane Isaac. The apartment complex behind us has a tree cutting guy in the back with a crane to cut down that tree, as its roots are on their property. There is a tree in our neighbor's yard that has its roots on our property, so it's our responsibility. The tree cutters with the crane came and gave me an estimate of $700 to remove the 2 fallen branches of our tree or $1500 to remove the whole tree. The prices are only good now while he already has the crane back there. I am very hesitant to do this without having gotten estimates, but on the other hand, if that's a good deal, it'd be gone now. We can't afford the $1500 right now, but could swing the $700 and just be poor for a while. Run away or take the deal? Also, we hate (HATE) the neighbors with the yard that our tree is in, so not dealing with them further would be excellent. [more inside]
