Q. I have two 20-year old African Sumacs in my back yard that drop nearly all their leaves every summer. Every fall they always come back. Is this normal? Beautiful tress but make a real mess!
A. African sumac is a messy tree. There is going to be a lot of leaf drop and the female trees will drop a lot of berries. The seeds in the berries germinate easily and you may see seedlings popping up all over the place.
