All the trees turn brown

Autumn turns now, and many trees are losing their green colour.

It seem that where I live, the first tree to change is the walnut, closely followed by Acacias, which turn into golden trees. The Horse chestnut, often a victim of a leaf mite, changes colour too, and then the liquid amber, the sycamore and the tree of heaven. Around the hedgerow the brambles change and the wild fruit tree autumns magic want changing them into that display of reds, yellows and browns. Around Angers the plane trees have started to change, the oaks and the ash trees,and even the larch. The last tree to change seems to be the silver birch, hanging on to its leaves well into November. The Beech also hangs onto its leaves, but only when pruned, and they turn brown and stay on the tree
