Fall Color Report, October 16, 2019

Only subtle changes have taken place with the foliage scene over the last week, with darker greens fading a bit more.  A couple nights with lows in the upper 30’s to low 40’s are on tap before the weekend which should help speed up the process.  At this point, it appears the peak for color may delay until the first or second week of November.

Fall Color Report, October 9, 2019

Summer weather has finally loosened its grip and normal fall temperatures have replaced the heat.  However, drought conditions are increasing due to little or no rainfall. Until the nights get chilly to trigger the advance of fall color, the forest remains mostly green, although the deep green of summer has paled.  Tulip Poplar leaves are turning yellow as they always do and there are a few Sourwood trees sporting some brighter red leaves.
