I have and still will lose a lot of money this fall because of how fast the leaves have fallen. Not happy! Sure it's nice that the majority of them are off the trees (because I hate fall clean ups) but I lose a lot of money because of them falling so quickly and early.

We had a big leaf drop a couple o' weeks ago down here, but there are still lots of trees that have not even started to turn. Damned leaves. Has seriously put a crimp on mowing, but cleanups will be coming into full swing next week. I have heard lots of talk of a bad winter, but then again we hear that every year.

We had a huge leaf drop here around Macomb nearly two weeks ago....I'm just hoping it's not a result of diseased ash trees.....all of them dropped at once. The elms, maples etc are still hanging on. It kinda made it easier though cause I could mulch through it with a few extra cuts, so the next stage of the fall off will be that much easier. Been checking for the emerald borers but hav'nt found any proof of them in the ash trees around here, including one that I had cut down that had some health problems.
Whats a reasonable price to charge someone to take down a 6-7 inch diameter ash tree that I can pretty much drop into my trailer and take to a very near approved disposal site?
I could probably tear out the trunks with a good pull from the truck so that they can replant in the same spot with just a little bit of digging and cutting a few of the biggest roots.....

I am glad someone has leaves to pick up, Here there are JUST enough leaves on the lawn to make it look messy, I would say 40% of trees are still green. I usually pick up most leaves the last two weeks of October. Heck last week I picked up less than the week before, Wee need a huge down pour or some big wind again.

Looks like snow is in the forecast for tomorrow (Tuesday) but I'm sure it will be a few flurries, then it's back to cleaning up the leaves

It never fails we seem to do our last clean-up about December 1st every year.

Hello to all michiganers. Currently from Macomb county. Also, looking for snow and fertilizer sub-contractors for my accounts for the 2004 season. I hate the snow......Too bad I don't move down south.

Anyone else get their change in vehicle registration from the secretary of state? It says a permanent trailer plate will be issued for a one-time registration fee, depending on the weight. Mine came out to be $200.

Are there any LCO's near Ortonville that would be intrested in aeration for a clients lawn next spring? I told them I would ask around and include a business card of a company I found in this months bill.

Talk about a soggy week. I am stuck inside with almost constant rain for 3 days now.
