I have some fruit trees in a lawn area that I have been fertilizing with ammonium sulfate, but needed to change to a weed & feed. Is the fruit still safe to eat?
Rate This FAQ
The fruit should be safe to eat as long as you take extra care when applying the weed and feed fertilizer to make sure none of the fertilizer come into contact with either the leaves or the fruit that is on the tree. I have included a link that has some more information regarding the selection and use of fertilizers.

- We have 2 honeylocust trees in our yard. I would guess "Imperial honeylocust". They seem to be about 15 years old or so. They are spaced about 20 feet apart. This spring one has leafed out and the other is still not budding or leafing out. Over the winter, the one that is not budding turned bright red on the trunk, which we have never seen before.
