Our lawn is very bumpy and hard to walk on. Are the quaking aspen tree roots doing this? Should we aerate the lawn or does this cause more problems with the roots?

Your quaking aspen tree roots could be causing the bumps, or they could be caused by worms. You can dig into the bumps and if they are woody they belong to your tree, if they are just mounds of dirt they belong to your nightcrawlers.
Aeration is very beneficial. It not only helps with compacted soil, but it allows the worms to deposit their castings somewhere other than on the top of the ground. If you have further quesstions, you can call us at 851-8462.
