Actually I believe the author is comparing the impact of falling leaves and twigs to " a thousand wee and invisible axes." The quote is listed below;

"Bullets began to whistle among the branches and nip at the trees. Twigs and leaves came sailing down. It was as if a thousand axes, wee and invisible, were being wielded."
