If this has been covered elsewhere I apologize. I'm hoping to create a hugel bed in my yard and am in need of your advice! I have some sick old appletrees I'd like to cut down and use to create a hugel bed. Is this a bad idea? Also a neighbor will be cutting down a huge tree that is dying from Dutch Elm disease. Is it a bad idea to ask for the wood? Thank you!
identifying and learning about the disease could be faster but if you have the space it could be best to just use the diseased trees for a different family of trees and use another bed for trees of the same family
i would damn near guarentee it, there MAY be one or two diseases that effect veges and trees, but MOST disease's AT LEAST from MY UNDERSTANDING of it, only affect one plant family or plant type for the most part:)
