Maples dropping curled, brown leaves in Allegan County, Michigan

Plants & Wildlife
Allegan County, MI

Start Date: 10/8/2017 -  
We had more rain in the past week (0.87") than we did during the whole month of September (0.65"). Temperatures have come down from the record-breaking heat in late September, but they remain above average for this time of year. The lawn has started to turn green and grow a little bit. However, the trees (mainly maples) have continued to drop many curled-brown dry leaves prior to the typical fall color changes. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Plainwell 0.5 WSW on 10/8/2017
