Best way to get rid of maple key infestation
Yesterday afternoon, during some lovely breezes, not what I would call overly windy or anything, the neighbour's maple trees started to snow maple keys all over their yard, ours, and the yard next to ours in a flurry of maple tree procreation. It looks like a maple key version of Fall out there now, with keys littering the lawn and all the garden beds.
I've never had to deal with something like this before. We've lived at this house for 3 years now and the trees have never shed keys to anywhere near this extent. I'm loathe to think of what yanking out thousands of tiny maple trees is going to be like so I'd really like a seasoned Eastern Canadian's workable idea for getting rid of these annoying things before they drive themselves into the ground and germinate.
