Pepper Tree Leaves as Mulch - Yes or No?
I'm revisiting this topic since the results of a previous question about this were inconclusive, and we are having people come in to chop down dead trees, cut down weeds and remove the leaves from under the pepper trees in order to be prepared for any fires. There are thick layers of leaves under every tree and rather than having them carted off I'd like to use them as much-needed mulch in the garden. There is a belief that the leaves are toxic and will hurt plants that are mulched with them. I'd love to have your opinion.
Thanks in advance for any information. This job will be done tomorrow so I'd love to hear from you as soon as possible.
