Many of our trees are losing leaves. It’s not that they are losing all of their leaves, it’s that some of the leaves are falling.
I’m not sure if it was the wind or the cold that damaged them, but they are being dropped. Some areas have a lot of little green leaves on the ground.
Most of our trees are nearing full leaf. We do have a few trees that are still struggling to put on leaves. The ginko and catalpa are always late leafing out. Some trees that were damaged last fall or winter are really struggling to leaf out. Two of my young maples may not make it.
We have a week of warm dry weather if the weather man is right. This should allow things to dry enough for us to start soybean planting. I’m not sure things are dry enough yet. I’m still seeing a few wet spots out there. I’ll be out checking fields to see what the next step is.
