▲ ▼ Cleaning leaf debris from roadside trees
My local body is a joke, so we have to clean the leaf debris from the road every day ourself in our street. This has become a huge chore, wasting our time and energy. This has lead to many residents despising road side trees in-spite of we being in the dire need of more trees for the sake of the environment. We have a law against cutting down public trees.
I would like to hear some solutions to grow more trees in the public areas but without the nuisance of having to clean its debris every day.
That does sound like a problem, but unfortunately since we cannot do much about tree physiology(they need to shed their leaves to survive winter) and gravity (leaves should fall down); I think the cost-effective way to address this problem is to buy a leaf blower and asking someone else to clear the leaves every day by creating a small fund for it by the residents themselves.
