This was the mess I found in my driveway when I got home from work. I'm not complaining though. This butternut tree loses all of it's leaves at once. I pick them up and it's done. We have a sycamore tree in the front yard which loses leaves and branches year round. There will still be leaves on it when the snow flies and it will drop leaves on top of the snow which makes my yard always look messy. I will take this kind of one and done mess any time.
