I have never seen a tree with the "crotch" pointing at the ground but I like it.

We do it all the time to small trees that didn't drop yet. Works great for small jap maples that are a little late this year.

The more times I perform a cleanup = more money. I'd do a cleanup every day if I could get away with it.

Ornamental pears around here don't lose their leaves sometimes until December. That means I get to come back in December.

Yep we blow the leaves off small trees as well. Also shake them loose works also.
Probably does not make much difference overall to the total hours of leaf pickup. Almost all of our leafpickup hours are incontract about 2000 hours this year. On top of that we will get a few out of contract cleanups on other properties were the other service provider is not keeping up or sometimes non-maintained properties as well.

I've seen both of the most random things, a woman blowing her tree in the middle of summer, with still green leaves. And my weird neighbor has actually pressure washed his tree.
