As we all can see, leaves have changed colors and have begun to fall. When the leaves leave a tree where do they go? They go down to the ground. While that may seem logical, not all do make it to the ground. Some will land on your roof which causes two significan problems. The first is they can clog your gutters which can cause significant problems over the longer term. When gutters can not drain the water sits there causing problems to the wood structure of your home. The second problem can be a fire issue. If a spark from your fireplace were to start a fire in your gutters or on your roof. That could cause a real problem over the shorter term.
