Reader Mail: Brown leaves in July?
Hoboken’s annual early brown leaves festival
Happens every year – everyone wonders why certain trees lose their leaves so early in the summer!
Early Autumn at Shipyard Park
Once again, a Hoboken411 reader wonders what the deal is with the “early autumn” in Hoboken – this time over at Shipyard Park…
“I live in the Shipyards, and the sidewalks and the park are covered with fallen, dead leaves from the trees that surround the park. It’s a perfect “October” picture, but this is July. What the hell is going on?”
Wrong trees for Hoboken?
We covered a similar situation back in the Summer of 2007. The readers debated back and forth whether these London Plane Sycamore trees had some kind of Anthracnose Fungi – and some felt the trees were just “not watered properly” and may be inappropriate for this area. One reader commented that it may be “Summer Heat Scorch” and so on…
But it looks nice, despite being a bit out of season. Sort of like wearing white pants in January?
