Cottonwoods around pond
Our 4 acre pond in Fannin Co is now reduced to about 1 acre in the span of 4 years. I understand the impact of drought, but also think the abundance of cottonwoods surrounding the pond has had a significant impact on the water level. Should the cottonwoods be removed? If so, what is the least environmentally offensive way to do this
It is difficult for me to say that they need to be removed, I would attribute the decline in your pond water to the drought that we had experienced and also, issues with pond leaking potentially. If you could email some photos to firstname.lastname@example.org that would better help explain your situation.
