Q.To Keep Or Not To Keep A Redbud Tree With Pods.
I LOVE our redbud trees, they are beautiful in spring, and very appealing to the eye all year round. BUTTTT, they have soooooo many pods that drop and have created small redbud forests all around our yard. We now have maybe 4-5 red bud trees, and tons of little almost bushes from the redbud pods. We’re planning to get rid of all the redbuds, but I fear I will be sad when they are gone.

That one will be totally up to you! They will, likely, continue to reproduce and grow in number. If this is something that you can tolerate, then keeping them is not a bad idea. With some diligence, the seedlings can be managed.
