you have to remember too that each year is a little different. I'm seing a greatly reduced leaf volume this season due to the extreme drought, I think, not to mention the decimation from the ash borer. I have whole stands of ash trees that are leafless and dead. On one property alone I counted 23 dead ash trees, no cleanup there! I haven't tarped anything yet, but will next week. I get it to the curb and another local landscape guy swings by with his vac crew. So glad I don't have to fool with pickup and disposal anymore.
