In this KXAN segment, Dave Madden from Davey’s South Austin office talks about how drought can cause trees to lose their leaves.
If you were hoping to view some beautiful fall foliage this month, you may be in for some bad luck. Arborists with the Davey Tree Expert Company said this year’s drought may have caused many trees to shed their leaves early.
This year has seen one of Texas’ more extreme recent droughts. Worsening drought is expected this winter as well. A third year of La Niña is expected; that means warmer and drier weather during the colder months. While snow and/or precipitation is possible, it is less likely.
Meteorologist Nick Bannin spoke with Dave Madden to learn more about the impact the drought has had on fall foliage.
