The biggest problem anyone with trees faces is disposing of dry leaves. It is an ongoing process. Apart from using leaves for mulching there still remain heaps that need attention. We have an incinerator that burns the dry leaves and produces ash that is a great fertilizer. Care is taken nothing else such as plastics is put in there but just dry leaves. The emitting smoke is high enough that does not interfere with one's breathing. The smoke also helps to kill mosquitoes.
