I tend to have worse reception also once I get leaves. But someone also mentioned recently that it might also be blamed somewhat on daylight savings time. It has something to do with the ionization of the air in the day time. The days get gradually longer but there is that one sudden noticeable jump when we go to DSL.
Last week I noticed an increase of drop outs on my local UPN channel and I don't even have leaves on the trees yet here. But it may have been just a fluke, a one time thing.
These are my observations over the last two years. Leaves by themselves= not much difference. Leaves + Wind=more drop-outs. Leaves + wind + rain=worst case scenario. I have a roof mounted CM4228 with pre-amp, and lots of large oak trees.
