    Are you asking for maple and oak leaves from the trees around our houses? If so I may be able to get you both. If I have them I will PM you. I will also include pictures of the leaves to make sure I have the correct ones. I am not sure about different trees but my husband knows what maples and oaks are.

    I know the one in my yard was not and I will ask my neighbors if theirs were or not too. I will see and get back to you.

    I have this maple tree in front of my house, do you just want the leaves? Brown or green leaves? Also I have a bunch of the fruit/helicopter thingy's to, do you want any of those as well?

    Incidently, I am not good at identifying trees, so I had to look up what the leaves actually looked like, I am a semi idea but wanted to make sure. I do know both Maple and Oaks are pretty common around these parts. As these are pretty well known around Michigan. Also how soon would you need them? Or should I ask how many?

    Just the leaves, any color is fine. The ones I have used in the past were yellow, brown and red.

    If you do send some, make sure they are dried leaves. I found out the hard way that if they aren't dried out before sending I get a bag full of mold LOL

    As for the amount, usually people send in a gallon ziplock baggie. I'll take what I can get! I have some left, but not a lot. It's a whenever they fall off the tree thing, so no rush.

    Sugar maple trees tend to have the beautiful deep fall colors. Oak trees have more rounded tips on their leaves.
