    Additional notes
    The leaves in this photo are beginning to turn brown at the edges which is a sign of drought stress.  In deciduous trees, curling, marginal browning, shedding, and early autumn coloration of leaves are well-known responses to drought.  In conifers, drought may cause yellowing and browning of needle tips.

    Rainfall amounts from May through August 2007 across southern Ohio were roughly 30% of normal.  Southern Ohio was classified as D3, or extreme drought, by the U.S. Drought Monitor.
