nd the same time. leah says " the leaves are changing colors but did you know these colors or pigments are always there on the leaf. these colors depend on the type of tree. some turn red, orange and yellow. these colors emerge when the trees start to take in as many nutrients as they can before winter starts. this turns the leaves from the green to the bright fall colors. professor john roden from southern oregon university tells me this is unique to broad leaf trees. pine trees or evergreen trees keep their pines for years before dropping. when you see pine needles on the ground it's because the needles were old, not because of winter temperatures. john roden says "they are more resistance to winter cold and so they can handle winter cold temperatures better and therefore survive and stay around until next year." trees like maple or oak start changing colors once daylight hours get shorter. in ashland leah thompson newswatch 12.
