Some leaves turning early here too. I'm concerned that it will be another harsh winter like last year. That will mean burning alot more wood than normal. As far as the squirrelly tree rats, the fishercat got all the ones in our area. Plan on it being a nasty winter, that way if you are disappointed you can smile about it. Good Luck, Rick

Don't know the squirrel answer, but hornets have built nests locally and they are close to the ground meaning a mild winter.
I once saw a hornet nest in a tall tree overhanging a bluff, making the nest 60-70' off the ground! Don't remember what that winter was like though. ~~ Lowell

In 2012 our trees turned very early, but it was because of stress due to lack of rain. There are many factors that determine when leaves change colors, and squirrels just like to screw with our heads, they're very intelligent and devious.

Several critical questions have yet to be asked....What color are the squirrels? How big are the nuts? Do they speak to you?

We went for a walk around the property today. Normally there is about 1 squirrel for every 1000 sq feet of property. Today we found 1 on all 5 acres.

Oddly enough same here but we have never really had a major problem with them here.
