New Englanders - Are trees turning earlier this year?

Jump to last reply

I live NE of Boston, and I have been surprised to note that trees seem like they are starting to color earlier this year than the past several. There are even particular trees that I admire every year that I have noticed this on. I don't mean they have turned yet (although some leaves, and even isolated trees, are starting to), but that leaf color is already shifting in perceptible ways.

Is it my imagination - after all, it was a cool and wet summer and the fall chill is already in the air - or are other New England residents seeing (or sensing) the same thing?

(Note to Rhode Islanders: I had to leave one state off the post title due to Fodors limits, and I picked RI simply because, for better or for worse, it is the state I least associate with fall foliage. Sorry about that - no slight of you intended!)

(Note to editors: There was noting like this - that I could see, anyway - in the US Forum, where I assume it belongs. But if it goes in the Lounge, feel free to move it).
