We have this huge beautiful tree in my front yard that I hate nine months out of the year. It's not your average tree where the leafs fall off only in the fall, no they fall off 9 months out of the year. When I say fall I mean they cover my yard, the neighbors yard and the street. The piles are higher then our ankles. We can spend 3 hours getting them in piles just to have it just as bad as when we started 12 hours later. What we have learned from other people on our street is that when these houses first went up they all had the same tree and everyone hated them so much that they had them taken out of there yards. I guess the tree is sick, what ever that means. For reasons beyond our control we can't get rid of this tree. All I know is these pictures your about to see don't do what I'm saying justice.
