I started collecting all of my leaves and composting them over the winter in a large Rubbermaid pond liner. By the spring Ive got black fertile compost that does wonders for my garden.

I thought that article was going someplace smart but it didn't.

Ideally, we would not rake leaves from beneath our Oak trees (and other forest trees) because that is the ideal 'mulch' for them. They are most healthy living the way they would in the forest, roots covered with layers of it's own discharge and the critters that live within it.

And we should want our trees to be as healthy as possible, we don't need them breaking off in a windy storm (perhaps on our houses). To name just one reason.
