Some people have noticed leaves falling early this season. This likely due to the hot and dry growing season, which triggered the abscission layer of the leaves to form early and caused them to fall down before fully changing colors. Ideal conditions for a colorful fall are a wetter summer growing season followed by a sunny, dry, cool fall.
