In the fall when it gets cold, we all want to make like a tree and “leaf”! While many of us remain attached to our warm homes, the leaves on the trees fall to the ground and often into the lake. These leaves build up over time and cause additional sediment in the lake as they decompose. There are some simple management efforts that lake property owners can use to keep the leaves from ending up in the lake as sediment. Leaf management information was provided courtesy of www.myfairlakes.com and www.RenewtheRock.com. Please visit these websites or the “Reports” page to learn more about these simple management techniques.
