Are pecan tree leaves to acidic for composting?
Dee W on Nov 03, 2012Nothing I have read seems to believe so. You should be alright as long as you keep your compost balanced with organic materials.Helpful Reply
Jill P on Nov 03, 2012OK thanks. I have 3 trees in my yard & someone told me I shouldn't composed them. I mix organic matter in with them so I guess I should be fine. Thanks again!Helpful Reply
Douglas Hunt on Nov 04, 2012Pecan leaves from trees growing in acidic soil may tend to be slightly acidic, just as leaves from trees from alkaline soils may tend the other way. In either case, the amounts are negligible and should have no impact on a balanced compost, as Dee says.Helpful Reply
