The colors are out and some trees are spectacular! There are all sorts of colorful trees for the fall that just can't be beat. The maples are some of my favorites. Here are some suggestions for trees with great fall color:
Sugar Maple (Acer Saccharum): beautiful yellow orange foliage
Red Maple (Acer rubrum) red foliage (of course)
Japanese Maples (Acer Palmatum).
Sweet Gum (Liquidambar): Purple to red are common but beautiful to look at.
Red Oak (Quercus rubra)
Pin Oak (Quercus palustris)
Ginkgo Biloba or Maidenhair Tree has a bright golden color.
There are many varieties of the maple trees to choose from including October Glory and Sunset maple. A mature Ginkgo tree can't be topped for its golden colors. Just make sure you find the male of the species, the females drop very messy fruits.
