One thing many gardeners and property owners have noticed this spring is a virtual explosion of maple tree seedlings covering lawns, gardens and flower beds all across our area. What caused it? A few events, perfectly timed, have led to this maple invasion.
Like maple leaf tar spot, the best way to control this is to completely rake away leaves in fall to keep the spores from overwintering in the area of the tree. Fungicides can be applied in spring just as the leaves are emerging.
With the emerald ash borer threat imminent or present in many counties in our area, many property owners get understandably nervous when their precious ash trees begin to do strange things, such as drop all the leaves they just budded.
First, trees in our area produced a major crop of seed last Nike Air Huarache 2018 Hyper Punch summer and fall due to the severe drought the year before. That is the tree's natural reaction to stress. Secondly, due to the heavy snow cover and lack of freezing and thawing cycles that kills off the majority of maple seeds during the winter, the seeds were afforded a fairly stable environment and temperature all winter, which allowed most of them to survive.
weeks of spring and Mother Nature is doing just what she does best, catching up and righting all the wrongs she did this past winter. Don't believe it? Look all around you. Cottonwood is drifting through the air, monarch butterflies have returned for a new season, June wildflowers are already in bloom and our forests are completely leafed out, just like every other year. The memories of a long, cold winter, along with the fears for our plants and wildlife that came with it, are already a distant memory.

It is up to us, as gardeners and nature lovers, to do our part to help save the monarch. Plant milkweed wherever you can this spring and summer. This is vital for the butterflies as a host plant for the caterpillars.
Another great idea is to shred and stir into mashed potatoes or potato salad for a kick of flavor.

Survive, they did, and we now see them carpeting the ground at parks, nature centers, even our own lawns and gardens.
I, as well as many others in our area saw the first monarch butterflies of the season over the weekend.
