Fall Trees Provide Great Fall ColorFall Trees provide great leaf color! Many people travel to New England in the fall specifically to see the changing leaves. The Smokey Mountains is also dramatic. According to Gatlinburg.com: "Autumn in Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a special time when a glorious leaf season of several weeks is enjoyed by visitors as fall colors travel down the mountainsides from the highest elevations to the foothills." You can enjoy great color in your own backyard. Sugar Maple is a superior example, which can be grown all but the warmest zones of the US. The leaves of the sugar maple can turn from yellow to orange, and finally to red in the fall. The diversity of this tree makes it impressive all year round, but especially in the fall. The Tupelo Tree ( Nyssa sylvatica) which might also be known as the blackgum or the black tupelo tree, is often used as a specimen or shade tree. The Tupelo Tree is a stand-out fall foliage tree, which produces various hues of orange, red, and yellow- often on the same branch. Additionally, bees find these trees a great late-spring food source.
