    same here in SE PA. I did a few clean ups, skipped all last week though. Grass isn't growing and the leaves aren't falling. It's kinda freaky. Some trees are done and others are still lush & green with no color. A handful have some orange but usually there's more down by this time of year.......Hell 2 years ago I mowed one day and plowed 10" of snow the next day. That was a real mess. This is getting really deep, I better have another beer and ponder awhile.

    We had several large oaks do just that this past winter. They didn't drop their leaves until this springs

    Here in Mn. We've cleaned a few leaves. No total clean ups yet. Grass is still growing and green. Most of the trees are green. The ones that are not green don't have a leaf.

    the lawns here are half and half on growing.... Raining this morning, and I'm not seeing many leaves falling. Last year a noticed a few red oaks who held their leaves all winter. I thought that they had became diseased and died, but I was wrong.

    I'm fine with doing leaf clean up during December and/or January.......as long as we don't get any snow. Something makes me think we will have a lot of green trees when the snow does come this year though:rolleyes:

    You mean you don't want to get two birds with one stone? Plowing snow and leaves together? haha
