BOISE -- Fall is putting on a show across the Treasure Valley and arborists say now is the best time to take in the beauty of the season.

Vibrant reds, yellows and oranges currently paint the Boise skyline.

Go here to see photos.

"Because the daylight period of the days is shorter, the trees go into this dormant state and kind of begin to prepare for winter," said Mitchell Hintze, certified arborist with Pro Care Landscaping Services.

Hintze told us there's no shortage of varieties to see in the City of Trees.

"You have just pretty much anything you would want to see," he said. "The maples, of course...red oaks are gorgeous. Dogwoods are great."

You don't have to travel far for a front row seat. We found people taking in the fall color at Kathryn Albertson Park in Boise.

"Yellow is my favorite color, but love the red," said Kristin Adams who was walking her dog through the park. "The leaves are gorgeous."

However, the beautiful views won't be around for long. Hintze said colder weather will soon cause the leaves to fall.

"You'll get the majority of a good show right about now. This weekend I would say," said Hintze.

So be sure to head outside and enjoy all the beautiful color the City of Trees has to offer before it's gone.
