Alright, it's almost the middle of November and I still have trees which haven't dropped even close to all of their leaves.
At this rate I'll be raking leaves in December.
This tree is still changing colors!
If it doesn't get with the program and drop the leaves this week I'll consider removing them by force. Mr Maple Tree, meet Mr Chainsaw. Unfortunately, this tree is all that blocks our house from cars which could otherwise run directly from the adjacent street straight into our house. I was told that a few years ago the FedEx guy came close to it due to icy roads, and that the previous owners of the house were paid well for the "damage" to the lawn.
