|There is a young maple tree in my backyard and I was going to plant some flower seeds around the base of it. When I started to pull back the mulch I found I have a HUGE infestation of ants almost all around the tree. Millions of ants and larvae.
My questions is will my tree be okay or do I need to do something for the ants?

|I think it depends on which ants they are. Some ants like to live in tree hollows, but I don't know whether they cause them. In our pastures, there is an ant mound at the base of almost every tree - always on the south side. They are fire ants and do not seem to harm the trees.
