I’m sure you’ve seen and experienced the leaf cycle, but have you considered the amount of different leaves around you?

Fall is a beautiful time of year when we are transitioning from summer to winter. Colorful leaves surround you and create a warm atmosphere while falling from the sky.

They can make you feel home no matter where you are. Most of us in the North are familiar with this feeling and sight, but there’s so much more to know than their warmth and colors!  Many northerners are used to the season of fall and celebrate autumn for the beauty it adds to Appalachia.

During fall, when you’re walking on a sidewalk around Brunswick, you walk under trees full of autumn colors: yellow, orange, brown, rust, copper, and even red! Some of our local trees include what’s listed below.

  • Pin Oak

The Pin Oak tree is native to North America, it grows in the eastern and central parts of America.

  • Eastern White Pine

The Eastern White Pine, is not only native to North America, but also Canada!

  • Spruce Trees

Spruce Trees can be found all around the world, places include Europe and Asia, but specifically they come from the northern hemisphere.

  •  Umbrella Magnolia

Umbrella Magnolias can be found in the U.S., specifically in places like the Appalachian Mountains.

  •  Norway Maple

The Norway Maple is native to Europe and Western Asia, but can be found around the U.S. due to it making a beautiful piece of decor.

  • Japanese Maple

As it says in the name, the Japanese Maple originates in Japan.

  • Persimmon Trees

These trees come from east Asia, specifically China, Korea, and Japan.

Knowing the trees around you can help identify pest issues, why a plant is wilting, or diseases spreading through the greenery in your backyard.  The fall of leaves is part of the harvest cycle and allows regrowth for the seasons.
