Fall leaves never dropped
My young Silver Linden carried its dried fall leaves all the way through the following spring with the new spring leaves already budding out. Had to physically remove the dried leaves by hand. This did not happen prior year. I noticed another boulevard Silver Linden with same condition. Have ideas on what happened or how to prevent happening again?

Unfortunately, this just happens sometimes... It happens with many species. They will remove themselves at some point during the year, so it isn't necessary to remove them by hand. It may take a little longer, but they will eventually fall off. There is nothing to be done about this.
