can piles of oak leaves dumped in woods hurt existing large oak trees?

I live on 1/3 acre with 7 large oak trees with many more all around. We're essentially in the woods. We have an empty 1/2 acre lot behind us that the neighbors dump leaves into. One of the neighbors advised my wife that we should not dump our leaves there because it would overwhelm the existing trees, pointing to a fallen oak from years back. My wife believes him, however i see him dumping leaves there, so i think hes just being a grumpy old foof. Can anyone expound upon this subject in reference to the safety of the existing trees? Many of these trees are easily over 70 feet tall and 2-3 feet thick.
