Fall Color at Big Trees

Fall Colors Coming Up!

The Big-Leaf Maples, Dogwoods, Hazelnuts, and other shrubs will begin turning into their fall colors gradually. The best color is early November and will generally last until around Thanksgiving. Some Mountain Dogwoods start turning red even in August, but late October is usually best. A good time to see the peak of color is right after a strong rain, when the ground is sometimes carpeted with red and yellow leaves knocked down from the trees.
