It's tough, but they are the only shade trees we have and I love the shade. Luckily it's only 2 times a year, I think the 100 degree temps and no rain caused it to start falling early.

Blah.

Lol leaves suck. My backyard neighbors let both of their huge pine trees die during our drought. Not only are they horrible looking and probably ruining our property value, but the yard and pool are always full of pine needles.

We have a couple of 70' ponderosa pines that do the same thing. I can't even pull out the skimmer basket because the suction has it stuck with so many needles. I end up emptying it 3 times a day right now.
