Driving around, you may have noticed some of the leaves on trees are turning brown already and drying out prematurely as the fall season just gets underway. This may be due, in part, to the ongoing drought the region is facing.

Greg Mosman, arborist for the city of Boston, met with us at the William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park and spoke about the tree damage he has seen from the drought.

This segment aired on September 15, 2016.
