The wind and rain this past weekend has the leaves finally falling and at their fastest pace. This is the time each year when it is hard to keep up. It is also sometimes hard to tell if we were even at a site as the leaf drop covers up our cleanup work within hours. As shown above, we cleaned up this property Monday and by this morning, there were as many leaves down as we had just picked up. It is often hard to tell that we had visited and removed leaves on many properties due to the heavy leaf drop.
The good news is that this heavy leaf fall means that many trees will lose their leaves over the next week or so, and within a few weeks, many sites will stay clean after our leaf removal efforts. The bad news is that it will be very messy until then.
Be confident that we are being diligent right now visiting most properties weekly and removing the leaves on the most important areas and focusing on bulk removal. We don't worry too much on details until the leaves are all down as too detailed of cleanup is a waste of time and short lived while the leaves continue to fall.
