My Birch Trees Are Dropping Leaves
I have two birch trees in my yard that are dropping leaves. I raked up enough to fill a large trash can early this afternoon. A good share of the leaves still on the tree are yellow; I imagine they'll drop soon.
I'm really upset. I'm trying to keep my yard beautiful and the lack of rain is making that very difficult. Keeping the lawn watered is a daunting task and now with the yellow leaves scattered everywhere, I'm fighting a battle that's bigger than I am.
I've watered the birch trees a few times this season because I know they suffer when it's dry. They've lost leaves previous years but nothing like now. I let hoses dribble on both trees this morning while I was at work, about 4 hours. I may not save the leaves but hopefully the trees won't die.
Thanks for reading; I really needed to vent. I will be more upbeat next time I post here!!!!! Let's hope, anyway.
