The Tenth Fall. Wouldn't that be a great title for a book? My 10-year old maple tree is again glowing with color just as the other trees are dropping most of their leaves. It's amazing how fast it changed from green to red - maybe two days. Mom lost a large tree in her backyard and D&K replaced it with a "baby" version of this. It's a fast-growing maple that will be shading her yard in just a few years. Hers changed to red even this year.
