When do different trees end in leaffall?
Leaffall, as a seasonal phenomenon, occurs in each plant at a specific time. It depends on the type of tree, its age and the climate.
Poplars and oaks part with their leaves in the past, then the time for rowan trees comes. The apple tree of one of the latter drops its leaves and, even in winter, may still have a few leaves on it.
A poplar leaffall begins at the end of September, and by mid-October it completely ends. Young trees retain their leaves longer and later turn yellow.
Oaks begin to lose their leaves at the beginning of September and lose their crown completely after a month. If frost begins earlier, leaffall is much faster. Acorns begin to crumble together with the leaves of the oak.
Riabin begins to fall in early October and continues to delight in its pink leaves until November 1. It is believed that after the rowan leaves are separated from the last ones, the frosty cold days begin.
Leaves on the apple begin to turn golden by 20 September. By the end of this month, leaffall begins. The last leaves crumble from the apple tree in the second half of October.
