Autumn Leaves

Our Arbor Day theme, There’s Treasure in Trees, was intended to bring attention to the many benefits of trees. They are now leaving treasure for us in the form of autumn leaves. Instead of putting our leaves out to be picked up, let’s consider turning this trash into treasure…

A word of caution: Leaf litter that collects below diseased plants is best disposed of and you may want to avoid leaves from invasive species so that seed is not spread.

Yes, you could rake them to the curb for pick and then drive down to the garden center to buy some compost, which may have been made of leaves! It just makes much more sense to treat leaves like treasure rather than trash.
