This week’s Friday Tree is no mystery – it is the same as last weeks Friday Tree. Do you know it? This picture reminds us that, for many trees, autumn may already have begun. What are you seeing where you live? Are there signs of autumn in the trees around you?
Over the next few weeks, we will have some updates on autumn, and how trees prepare for the cold season. Trees don’t simply cast off their leaves. Instead, there is an orderly process of withdrawing nutrients, and it is this process that results in autumn colors.
