INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana Department of Natural Resources forester says the fall color display for trees is on schedule across most of Indiana, but recent cool, rainy and windy weather is likely to slow the color change and knock leaves down.
Carrie Tauscher said Wednesday that the weather could result in a shorter viewing season. She says the best fall color formation happens when there are bright, warm days, cool nights and moist soils.
Tauscher says yellows and orange colors have emerged from the trees across Indiana. She also says tulip poplar sycamore, sweetgum, cottonwood and some of the understory trees like sassafras are starting to turn and give “some great gold colors.”
Tauscher says sugar maples will come into full color along with the oaks between now and early November.
