In October trhe leaves are starting to turn. The leaves are old and dark green and you can see a little brown on the tree. The abcission cells are begining to grow between the leaf and the tree. In time these will expand and push the leaf away and act as a protective covering for the tree. The acorns have mostly fallen by now and there is a small amount of leaf litter on the ground.
