The University of Georgia, Warnell School of Forestry released a statement recently clearing the air on fall color in this neck of the woods.
“Regional climate change has delayed the peak time for leaf color change, and there have been some less than ideal conditions this year that will likely affect the vibrancy. However, Warnell tree expert Dr. Kim Coder predicts a great leaf color season.”
For the past few years, as discussions about fall shoots comes up, conversation has turned to why haven’t the leaves changed yet. Well I guess for future planning, experts say ten days later in the south. Nothing earth shaking, but handy for next year’s fall planning. Now let’s work on spring blooms.
