Do you think fall will be 'early' this year in the Northeast (or anywhere else it's been dry)? I hope so. I love to get as many leaves out for the villages to pick up as possible so there's less hauling for me. Deadline is Dec 1, but leaves hang on longer in wet years it seems. I've already seen some drought stressed trees beginning to lose their leaves. The beech and oaks, etc will hold on until the bitter end regardless. I like early falls a lot. Even better when it's dry! Who is with me?
