October Colors in NJ

October 10th, 2013 | By: Mitchell Knapp | Blog

Fall is always the most beautiful time of year to marvel at all the colors and seasons changing before our very eyes. The richness of colors mixed with the warm sun and cooler temperatures create days & scenery that is captivating throughout the north east region.

While it is a fascinationg sight to see year after year, often times people wonder what it is that exactly causes the leaves to change color time and time again. Nature works in fascinating ways.

During this fall season,the days get are gradually becoming shorter as the temperatures slowly drop. The sun doesn’t warm the leaves as directly or intensely as it did during the spring and summer months. In these shorter, cooler days, the process of making food within the leaves ceases. As this occurs, the leaves use the food they’ve stored throughout the summer. This causes the leaves’ green pigment to become less dominant, and gives other colors an opportunity to be displayed.
