It's a fact
Leaf color change in August may seem premature, but some trees will turn from green to yellow or red. Decreasing hours of daylight is the usual trigger of phenomenon that becomes widespread in September and early October. Black ashes, the first trees to prepare for dormancy, are already turning bright yellow.
