One of Missouri's tree experts predicts it's going to be spectacular fall.

The sugar maple, ashe, sasafras and sumac trees have the most colorful leaves right now in Central Missouri.

The oak trees' leaves are expected to change a little later. You can enjoy autumn's vibrant colors for a while longer... or at least until the first heavy rain. Bruce Palmer is a forest tree information specialist at the Department of Conservation
