Question: 606-3511
I have two maples that are very seedy and are dropping their leaves. What could be the problem? Audrey, Middletown, RI

Mort's Answer:
I would first check for cuts in the bark. If this is so, you will need a arborist to clean them out. Two years ago oak trees experienced leave drop. This occurs when trees are holding too much moisture. The trees go into premature dormancy to protect themselves.  If there are no signs of spots on the leaves and there are no earwigs, you can relax. If it is a sugar maple, you can tap into the cambium for a great supply of maple sugar to sweeten your situation.
