‘D*** my oak trees! They don’t follow the city’s Dec. 8th-last-day-leafbag-pickup-schedule and are definitely hanging on.” – taken from the Let It Out column in the Indianapolis Star on December 18, 2021.

My parents bought a new home in the early 1970’s in Greenwood, Indiana. My dad liked to plan and landscape our properties. He had two oak trees planted as part of the total Greenwood scenery design. We had not had any oak trees at our other houses so this was a new experience for us.
