"We have several silver Maple trees on our property and they drop lots of messy ""helicopter"" seeds every spring. Is there anything we can do to stop the tree from producing these seeds every year? Thanks"
Sorry there's nothing you can do to stop these trees from doing what comes naturally. If it helps, seedpod production does seem to run in cycles, with some years heavier than others, but there's really nothing you can do to stop the tree."
