Curly-leaf pondweed is a non-native, invasive submersed aquatic plant. It is generally the first pondweed to come up in spring and dies in mid-summer. Leaves have undulating and finely serrated edges. Curly-leaf pondweed has caused problems in lakes by producing extensive mats in 3 to 10 feet of water. The plant is often a problem in lakes with low water clarity, mid-summer Secchi depths of three feet or less.

Pruning at the correct time is important for the health of your trees. Pruning during the late dormant season (late winter, before spring growth begins) is best for most trees. Finish pruning your oaks in March; they should not be pruned in April, May, or June due to the potential for oak wilt infection. Apple trees, including crab apples, should be pruned anytime between February and early April because spring or summer pruning will increase the chance for infections and/or the spread of fire blight.
