Question From: INDIANA
Q: How can I get rid of catkins before they start falling? They are a nuisense.
Those catkins are the male flowers. I was not able to find a method to control the production of flowers. You might contact a certified arborist to see if there may be new products on the market that are safe for the environment. To find a professional in your area go to tcia.org and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
