I thought this might be a fun thing to do if I can remember to take a pic :foto: every week to see how the trees change and loose their leaves from week to week.

I'll do the birch tree in the front of the house too.

Good idea Greg. Watching this post so I don't miss out. Only been to Michigan once and that was several years ago for a quick job. Spent about three days in East Lansing.

Be sure to try to take the pictures from the same location each time, in order to best demonstrate the effect as we enter Fall and beyond! Chuck

The birch in the front will be naked in a week or so. Once the red maple in the back looses its leaves I'll be doing some major trimming on it. It has filled out nicely since I planted it, but now that I have a patio it's time to remove the 2 main lower branches. This will allow it to fill in with the spring growth and raise the canopy somewhat and not intrude on the patio so much. I do this thing when I trim trees like this, any branches that grow down get removed so it encourages upward growth.

Maple in the backyard is getting real pretty. Still some green leaves on it.

The birch turns fast and drops its leaves just as quick. It'll probably be bare next week.

Dry conditions here so the leaves mulch up really nice with the lawn mower.

Timeline looking Oct 3 to 10 is my favorite. We’re a few days from the peak here in the north GA mtns. Got down into 30s last night, got the wood stove going for second time in last few weeks. Nice time of the year for sure.
