OK, I know a little about growning a garden and how to do the canning and cooking but that is where my farmgirl mentality stops: why are the trees in our frong yard starting to turn red? It is only mid August, no they are not brown and they are like a maple type tree, the color is pretty, but it doesn't make much sense. Someone explain!!!!

maybe all the rain makes them think it's fall already?

Heat stress causes it and low rainfall. It usually happens every late summer, some years are worse than this cause it's been a fairly mild summer so far.

thanks, I would rather think it is caused by early fall, but I am sure you are closer to right.

We have several trees here (I dunno, they look like
poplars) that usually lose their leaves every July
due to low rainfall and high heat. Just peeking out
the window now they still have 90% of their leaves,
we've had a rainy summer.
ps Our oaks here don't turn till usually the end of
October or in November...we've a long way to go!

I don't think these are poplar and we don't lose the leaves on these. Last year our trees started turning in early to mid Sept and are at their peek about the last week of Oct. I guess about like yours. That is why I am so surprised.

This is happening in many parts of the country. In spite of a few warmer days in affected areas, there really has not been much of a summer in them.

The trees are doing what they do in fall, because fall is already arriving in certain parts of the country, climatically speaking.

It is due to a combination of the Negative PDO, a weak Sun (no spots) and multiple high latitude explosive volcanic eruptions that put lots of aerosols into the stratosphere.

All these factors have resulted in cooler than normal (and in cases, rainier than normal) conditions in much of the Nation's mid section and the northern portions of the two coasts.

thanks for clarifying that, makes sense. I see you on the Ca forum all the time, but don't think I have seen you here to often..Come and talk to us often, I like your views on life.
