Fall colors are red, orange, yellow, brown and dark green. Fall colors change trees and landscapes throughout the season of autumn according to the temperature outside.

In the fall or autumn season, temperatures drop, causing leaves to change colors. Maple tree leaves are the most familiar in the fall season, changing from green, to yellow, on to a dark orange or red and eventually brown until falling off a tree. Aspen trees, change from fields of bright green to vibrant gold. Winter will cause all autumn colors to fade away or hibernate until the following autumn season the next year.
