Trees in the early Autumn

September 23, 2014

At the end of what can only be described as a fantastic growing season – for crops, for the garden, for trees and shrubs – the leaves on the trees are ageing rapidly. Not a spectacular Autumn in terms of colour, but as the night time temperatures fall, leaves are dropping from some trees quite suddenly. Ash on the railway line, in at least in one case this week, drop their leaves overnight. The Poplar leaves drift down in ones and twos. Oaks, as ever, cling on to their leaves. It is clear that the huge growth, that all trees put on this year, makes most of them more susceptible to the colder nights.
