This is the first picture from which we will follow up the color of the wood, depending on the leaf that fall away.
Why lose their leaves?
Deciduous forests lose their leaves as protection against the cold. In Irati we have beech, oak, chestnut, rowan, elm, willow, hawthorn, hazel, maple, spindles and dogwoods, among others. Each with a different color in autumn, and a different rate of leaf fall.
We can not know exactly when the forest is more beautiful, because it depends on the wheather; cold, rain, and wind.
In the picture we can see the landscape around the point of information. To the left of the watermark there is a small shrub that has already begun to take some yellow color.There is a hazel, which because of its broad leaves, loses too much water. As we have had a prolonged drought, the leaves are needed of water.In any case, this is one of the first species that loose the leaves in autumn.
