Autumn in Wisconsin
Greetings from Wisconsin! Before the locals are secluded to their abodes for the winter we are treated to an array of colorful foliage. This change in our local scenery is caused by the reduced production of chlorophyll within a leaf’s cell.

Here is a brief sample of the colors you might see depending on what kind of tree you might come across:

  • Oak: Red or Brown
  • Hickories: Gold
  • Dogwood: Purple or Red
  • Birch: Yellow
  • Poplar: Yellow
  • Sugar Maple: Orange or Red
  • Black Maple: Yellow

Isn’t nature neat?!
