Good Leaves & Bad Leaves

It’s not too late to rake or blow away the leaves from below trees that were affected by leaf fungus problems this past summer.  Apple scab and other common diseases get a head start in the spring by leaving infected leaves on the ground.  If you did not have your ornamental tree and shrubs treated for disease issues, be sure to collect and dispose of those leaves.  These leaves are usually infected with spores and should be removed, possibly into the mulch pile or your neighbor’s yard (just kidding).  If you aren’t trying to grow a nice lawn beneath your healthy, unaffected maples or oaks than leave them behind to decay and give them back captured carbon.  If in doubt, remove the leaves or just give us a call and we can provide you with more information!

    I really like the fresh perpective you did on the issue. Really was not expecting that when I started off studying. Your concepts were easy to understand that I wondered why I never looked at it before. Glad to know that there’s an individual out there that definitely understands what he’s discussing. Great job
