Blazing Maples

Lots of the maples in Huron County were at their blazing best last weekend. Along M-25 on the east side of the county there were pockets of color straight out of a paintbox.

While some maples are showing 70% or more leaf drop, others are just warming up with yellow and orange leaves, speckled with the green of summer, as each individual tree changes on its own schedule.

With their magnificent dome shape and spreading branches, the maples commandeer lots of attention in autumn. From trees with isolated patches of color to full blown reds, these trees are spectacular.
