cutting Catalpa Tree beans off

Zone 7b | bikes1 added on July 28, 2015 | Answered

Can I cut the beans off the Catalpa tree without causing any harm to it? It would be so much easier to clean by cutting before they dry, drop their beans then fall to the ground.

Yes, you can do this, though it could be difficult to get at all the pods.
Every 2 to 3 years the tree produces a large amount of pods!

From experience, raking them as soon as they drop is the easiest clean up!
Best of luck.
