Nature's annual autumn color festival is certainly one of the greatest shows on earth. Each fall, millions of trees in the eastern deciduous forests respond to the shorter days and cooler nights by beginning preparations for their dormant winter period. It is just business as usual for the trees, but for us, it is a spectacular display of the beauty and diversity of nature. Every fall, nature paints the East Coast landscape with brilliant red, orange and yellow colors. Temperatures determine how bright the Fall Season will be. Cool nights and sunny days cause chemical reactions within leaves.
During summer months, a leaf is green thanks to an abundance of pigments in the chlorophyll. These green pigments gather energy from the sun, using it to manufacture sugars necessary for the tree's growth. Photosynthesis consumes the leaf's supply of chlorophylls, which trees replenish at a steady rate through summer months. But when days grow short and nights are cool, trees slow their chlorophyll pigment production. As demand outstrips supply, the green begins to fade. That allows other pigments to show through the fading green. Let's hope Mother Nature obliges us with some fall colors this year!
