Cold weather has arrived in Chicago Heights, and while residents are eager to put away the lawnmowers and garden tools, many of the trees across the Chicagoland area are not as eager to drop their leaves.
According to staff at the Morton Arboretum, when an area experiences a spring season full of rainy weather, a summer season that ends without much rain at all, a surprisingly warm autumn, and a surprisingly wet October, the area’s trees will retain their leaves much longer than usual and the much awaited fall color change is delayed. In many areas, the fall color change has not happened at all, and leaves have dropped while still green. Fortunately, we are finally beginning to see those leaves dropping throughout our city neighborhoods.
The City of Chicago Heights Leaf Pick-up Program began October 23rd and will be continuing on schedule until December 6th. To view the Leaf Pick-up and Street sweeping schedule, click here or the image below.
