Autumn colours could be cut short

Autumn colours could be cut short as climate change causes leaves to turn and drop earlier and more quickly, the National Trust has said in its annual review of nature in the UK.⁠

🌎 Climate change is “altering our landscapes forever”, the Trust said, with the familiar red and gold of autumn leaves from September into December potentially one of the casualties.⁠

This year, dry conditions from a warm September led to concerns that some trees would shed their leaves before Autumn arrived, the Trust said.⁠

☀️ Summer 2021 was one of the UK’s top ten hottest on record, despite dull skies in southern England for much of July and August.⁠

In the end, the extra September sunshine meant a “spectacular” array of reds in leaves when the Autumn colours finally arrived in October.⁠
