How Fall Color Happens The water from the ground travels upward in the tree. The green chlorophyll catches the sunlight witch allows the water in the ground to turn into a gas called “Carbon Dioxide”.

Monthly Foliage In July, leaves have the same amount of yellow pigment as they do in October. A thin layer of cells grow over the water tube and the leaves close up and prepares itself for winter.

What Trees Change Color?

Birches, Tulip Poplars, Redbud, and Hickory are always yellow in the fall, never orange or red.

Birches, Tulip Poplars, Redbud, and Hickory are always yellow in the fall, never orange or red. Evergreen trees and trees with needles don’t change colors.

Fall Colors New England evergreen trees usually shed their older leaves, and the best fall color is in the areas such as New England. They never drop all of their leaves at once. Inside of a leaf, there are lots of little packages of color such as green, orange, and yellow.
