Default Burnt leaf ashes in the garden

There has been a lot of talk about wood ashes in the garden. What about
ashes from burnt leafs, oak, maple, etc. in the garden, would it be
beneficial to the soil? Thanks

But much more beneficial when used in their unburnt form to create compost
or leafmold.

The ashes will be 'good' for the soil (and some plants) but instead of
burning leaves I compost them. By doing that there is no air pollution
created and the full benefit of the leaves goes into the garden. You could
even save them until next year and compost with your grass clippings...added
carbon.
