No, Nantucket doesn’t have dense forests bursting with deciduous tree leaves turning a rainbow of color. Nantucket is more subtle and secretive than that. Here are some of the startling bits of color seen around Nantucket this time of year. Sometimes the whole landscape is a wash in the colors of fall from the yellow grasses to the burnt red of changing shrubs. Nantucket Conservation Foundation’s many properties (there are 9,000 acres to choose from!) and see what kinds of color you might find! The Nantucket Conservation Foundation is a private, non-profit land trust that depends on contributions from our members to support our science projects, conservation property acquisitions and land management efforts.

In the forests of Nantucket, the Tupelo trees change color the earliest, shifting to bright red and visible from a distance.
