Because big maples are the GOAT at dropping mountains of leaves.

organic raking is really where it’s at now.  no reason to burn fossil fuels when mother nature has it on lockdown via wind and other more sustainable ways to move leaves imo

I usually rake one giant pile for the little FDs to jump in and when they get bored with that I put some in the compost pile and then leave the rest on the ground

I’m not good with trees either. I know mine because I paid some guy to pick them out and plant them for me and he told me.

Ash tree starting to turn. This guy usually dumps his leaves in about two days after they all turn.

Indeed.

Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on,
But let there never be curtain drawn

Maples just keep getting better and better.

Saw a lot of great trees at Konza today but this oak was probably my favorite:



Edit: I'm pretty sure this is an elm of some sort, not an oak.

serious questions for cats w/ htiq:

i have 6 maples in a row going down a hill.  there's probably 20 feet of elevation change at most from the top tree to the bottom tree.  for some reason, every year the tree at the top changes colors first, then the next tree, and so on.  on the back of the house there are other maples further downhill that haven't even started to change yet.  why do they change in that order?  do the trees at the top get more or less water or something?
