I have a rather large, approx 50ft tall, Magnolia tree in my front yard. Every fall I would rake the leaves and throw them out. A nieghbor told me that I should us the leaves as mulch around the tree. To avoid all the bagging I followed his advice. Now the tree is shedding leaves all year. It is now May and it looks like Late October under that tree. I am not sure if one is related to the other. Please let me knwo what, if anything I can do.
