The After Burn Part 2, Trees suffered over the summer with scorching temperatures and little rainfall and are showing symptoms of stress instead of bright colorful leaves. The trees that combated those harsh conditions have dropped their leaves due to stress or are holding onto less appreciated brown leaves. Drought symptoms can be seen by the less brilliant landscape and limited bold foliage in the Midwest. Below features images of the good, the bad, and the unfortunate of fall foliage
