They are a real pain in the you know what-what!!!!!!
What I do is use my eb7000 to get them out of landscape areas and then mulch em with the walkbehind, or if there are a lot mulch em and put in bags and haul away.
They are a real pain is one way to look at them or a real money maker is another way to view them. I include this in the bid and whenever I see a Magnolia tree on the property that I am bidding on. I remove them and do not mulch them up.
Interesting to read. I have 2 decent sized ones in my back yard, but they only drop once in the fall, and they mulch up just fine. Even if I leave them sit & pile up for the whole wet fall, which is what happened this year I agree the seed pods are a pain though, i try to rake them up when they're heavy instead of dulling the blades quicker than necessary.
Locust pods are the worst! And if you don't haul them away they start to smell really nasty. They were thick at my son's school and when we walk there he'd hold his nose through the section where they hadn't been cleaned up by the grounds crew LOL
I have several clients with the Magnolias, and they are very large and drop many leafs, I mulch what i can then blow the rest out and haul them away, but i charge enough that i make good money.......Marks Mowing Service
