From mid-September to early November, Montreal's many trees reveal an array of colors which, believe it or not, are present year round. Yellows, oranges and reds are hidden from view in warmer months by the green pigment chlorophyll, a molecule crucial to photosynthesis which begins disappearing from leaves as days grow shorter and temperatures drop, hence the color shift.
