The Norway maples dropped most of their leaves this week. These non-indigenous trees are taking over New England woodlands, pushing out the sugar and red maples. As the years go on, these will become the dominant hues of autumn in these parts. Nothing’s forever. When I was a kid Dutch Elms and White Ash were common. When my parents were kids American Chestnut forests covered North America.
