Lassen AgWeb Report: Fall Trees Farm Bureau Dinner

A Report From the Lassen County Cooperative Extension

by David Lile, Willis Dow 

Have you noticed how beautiful the trees are this time of year? Not everyone gets to experience fall color as we do here in north eastern California it is because of the cooler nights and shorter day lengths that our once lush green trees and shrubs transform into the vivid autumn palette of reds, oranges, golds, and browns. Leaves are the food factory for the plant, using a process called photosynthesis the plant turns water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and sugar. A chemical called chlorophyll helps make photosynthesis happen. Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color. As day length shorten and cool night temperatures arrive in the fall, the chlorophyll disappears from the leaves giving the tree its autumn color.

Fall is a great time to plant trees because they rest in the winter and a fall planting allows the tree to take full advantage of the growing season when spring arrives.

With the changing of the weather and much colder temperatures around the corner I would like to remind everyone to drain the water from their main lines, pumps, and all other irrigation systems. Also don’t forget to check the antifreeze in your cars, trucks, and tractors.

The  Lassen County Farm Bureau’s Annual meeting will be held at the elks lodge Saturday November 10 th at 6:00 p.m. This years meeting includes a social hour, tri tip dinner, a 50/50 cash raffle, presenting of the distinguished service awarded to Ceci Dale-Cesmat.  Speakers include Susan Abel from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Kenny Watkins first vise president of California Farm Bureau federation and to finish the evening comedian Mark Yaffee “Tall, Dark, & Hilarious” Co-Star to Pow Wow Comedy. Dinner is $23.00 or $22.00 if you bring 5 cans of non-perishable food to be donated to the local Food for Families program. Again that’s Saturday November 10 th at 6:00 p.m. everyone is welcome RSVP with a message at 257-7242.
