There are 4 forty foot tall black walnut trees in the front yard of the Munro House Bed and Breakfast in Jonesville, Michigan. They are always the first trees in the neighborhood to completely lose their leaves. The leaves started falling yesterday, and today the trees are bare.
The rest of the trees in the neighborhood have plenty of leaves, except my mulberry. All of their leaves fell overnight. The largest trees on my property have lost all of their leaves in a single weekend, that is the signal that peak leaf color has begun and should last for a few weeks. As you can see in the background, there is still plenty of fall foliage to view in areas without walnuts and mulberrys.
