Facts about Leaves:

  • According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data, leaves and other yard debris created about 34.7 million tons of waste in 2015, which is about 13% of all waste generated. The majority of that – 21.3 million tons – was composted or mulched in-state programs, yet still, 10.8 million tons went to landfills, accounting for just under 8% of all waste in landfills."

  • Leaves in landfills can break down with other organic waste to create methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.

  • Leaves are one of the very best sources of organic matter. 

  • Leaves are packed with trace minerals of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, absorbed from deep in the soil. 

  • Leaves improve the structure for all soil types as they aerate heavy clay soils, and help sandy soils retain moisture and check evaporation.

  • Leaves also provide an impost resource for wildlife that relies on leaf litter for food, shelter, and nesting material.

  • The leaves of one large shade tree can be worth as much as $50 of plant food and humus. Pound for pound, the leaves of most trees contain twice as many minerals as manure.
