is it to early for fall flyers?

i was driving accross town last night and i noticed that some leaves are starting to change colors already. so do you think it is still to early to start hanging up my fall flyers yet to get people to think about schedualing fall clean ups.

I think it is the perfect time to start planning for the fall. We are putting together a list of existing customers that need fall trimming and cleanups. And we are also working on getting new customers in a variety of different ways. Leaves are coming down much earlier than last year.

yea up the road from me there is this older couple that have two big trees right by the road next to their trialer and those two trees alone have already dropped enough leaves that they have had to rake it twice and it looked like 50 trees dropped leaves. we went from 90 degree weather to 65/75 degree weather in a day and its supposed to stay that way right through the next week. nights are already around 40 to low 50s. its crazy. their calling for a long wineter up here this year. so hopefully we can rake in some $$$$$.

you gotta send them asap....the early bird gets the worm. leaves are starting to change colors on the healthy trees and drop on the stressed or sick trees around me, and its definitely getting cooler out, people will be thinking about fall clean ups, and when my name comes up first in my area, they should call and they don't have to flip through a phone book, local paper, or even type anything in on the internet, they just have to get their mail which they already do anyways.
