There are about 250,000 leaves on an average mature tree.
That means, during its lifetime, it would shed about 3,600 pounds of leaves.
I have 80 trees.
You do the math! This year, I’ll rake about 28,800 pounds of leaves…or then, I could just let them lie.
I am so not looking forward to Fall, but it’s here nonetheless. Then again, I am, it’s a wonderful time of year. With the exception of the leaves, or the leaf raking.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Football, the smell of burning leaves, a nip in the air, cooler nights, sweaters, what’s not to love.
Oh yeah, the leaf raking!
