Last fall it was so dry the leaves just turned brown and fell of the trees, but this time should be different.

The color of this fall seems to be yellow. Intensity of color depends upon several factors, the rain that we've had this past summer, insects and diseases that might have affected the leaves.

Bruce Palmer, a forest tree information specialist with the Departament of Conservation says this year will be better.

It's seems like we will have a long and yellow fall this year in Missouri.
