Fall is the best time to plant most deciduous (leafy) trees. It gives them a head start on spring growth while they concentrate on building a healthy root system over the winter.
As long as the soil is workable, trees can be planted, and in most lower-altitude Colorado locations that means planting time extends well into late fall and even early winter before subsoil freezing becomes an issue.
If you’re looking for a small tree to accent your low-maintenance landscape, the mountain mahogany is an excellent choice. Native to Colorado’s rocky slopes, when mature, it has an attractive, twisted appearance that some liken to the African savanna.
One of the many joys of fall in Colorado is harvesting pine nuts. Long a staple in native diets, pine nuts have become a popular ingredient in today’s southwestern and Mediterranean cuisine as well as nutritious, high-energy snacks.
