Fall is just around the corner, and everyone is getting ready to rake up those colorful leaves that fall from the beautiful Connecticut trees. Have you ever walked past a yard full of the most vibrant leaves and wished that you had trees that produced them? It’s hard not to be jealous when you look around at public parks and other homes that are thought ahead to plant trees that produce colorful autumn leaves. Look no further than this blog to see a collection of different trees that will provide you with an array of colored leaves this fall.
The Vine Maple Tree
If you are a fan of that pinkish-red color that covers the streets in the fall, this is the tree for you. This tree produces bright leaves that are either a variation of red or a yellowy-green. It can grow up to 35 feet tall, so it is on the shorter side of trees and can easily be planted in pairs or more if you are truly in love with the tree's look.
The Quaking Aspen Tree
A big name for a beautiful tree. This kind of tree can grow up to 50 feet tall and have leaves that are shaped like plump pears. The fall out from the Quaking Aspen will leave your yard with burnt orange and a dark yellow blanket of beauty, so it could be what you’re looking for when planting with autumn in mind.
The Dogwood Tree
Dogwood trees bring two types of beauty to your property: the incredible dark magenta color that the leaves present as, and the tiny, shiny, red, oval berries that the branches produce. This smaller tree, usually only reaching about 30 feet in height or less, could be the perfect complement to your backyard garden.
The Sugar Maple Tree
As the tallest tree mentioned in this list, reaching about 75 feet in height, it has the potential to be a curbside tree or act as a privacy tree. In addition to the benefits of its height, the Sugar Maple tree produces wide, traditionally shaped leaves that turn a bright red, almost magenta color in the fall. This is the type of tree that will light up your landscaping and allow your home to be one of the most eye-catching ones on the block while the seasons are changing.
