Hey Guys, I have an account that has numeous apple trees. The ground underneath them is pretty well covered with fallen apples. Probably a dumb question, but what does everyone do with the fallen apples? Clean em up or mow em down?:dizzy:

ask your customer. Charge a little extra for removal. They will eventually kill the grass under the tree. Either way, be carefull, yellow jackets love em.

So do the furry cridders like fat wood chucks.

well.... i have a business that has them, the people that work there usually use them, but i have resident client that has us pick them up in which we charge a little extra for every week when they are coming off the tree. you really need to ask your client if they wont them picked up or not that will determine what or if you charge for picking up or not.

Thanks to all that have pitched in. And yes the deer have found them too. SO far I've just been running over them and making some apple sauce, pissing off the bees. Have a safe week!

Yes to mowing them over, it is effective. However, if they contain disease (along with the leaves), it will be dormant until next season.

I love mowing over fruit. Sure, it makes a sticky mess... but, MAN, it smells good!
