Fall is officially here folks! With that comes the changing of the leaves and the inflow of leaf-peepers from all over the country. This year is going to have exceptionally beautiful fall colors.
An ancient remnant of a now extinct family of trees. Fossils of this tree go back 270 million years! We’re lucky enough to get to see the show that these trees put on every fall. Look for the bright yellow fan-shaped leaves of the Gingko, also known as the maidenhair tree, this fall.
The mighty oak is known all over the country as a strong and hearty tree. In the fall we get to see the beautiful side of this tough tree. The leaves turn a brilliant scarlet red, where it gets its name. This tree will be an easy one to spot and not just because of the color, scarlet oaks have been known to grow to over 100ft tall! Keep your eyes open for these scarlet giants!
Looking for beautiful purple and red leaves this fall? Look no further than the Korean Dogwood. Not only is this tree beautiful in the fall, but it also has splendid white and pink flowers in the spring. If you thought this tree just couldn’t get any better, think again! This tree is resilient to many diseases, including anthracnose. With fall being one of the best times of the year to plant this tree, I don’t know what you’re waiting for!
The unique mitten-shaped leaves of this tree are easy to spot. They turn a gorgeous yellow, red, orange, and even purple! Not only is this tree beautiful to look at, but it was also responsible for root beer! Look (and smell) around for this beautiful tree this fall!
This sweet tree is an excellent source of maple syrup, but the fall foliage will absolutely knock you out! In the fall these trees put on a show that can hardly be described. The leaves go from bright green all the way to a dark purple. Throughout this transition, they hit nearly every color on the spectrum. You can even sometimes see all of the colors together on one leaf!
