Quite usual for some species of trees:

and if used as hedging,
European Beech's foliage turns bronze in fall and clings to the branches through winter, providing year-round screening and privacy.

Thanks, you learn something every day. That tree probably has done that every year but I never noticed before.

Another photo of 2 contrails crossing each other observed from Geraldine late this morning around noon.
Interesting to see what levels the aircraft were? The crossing was about 10 minutes between each other.

Here's a photo I took of the blue dome skies this morning before cloud moved over late morning.
If you look carefully at the right hand side you can see a bit of a contrail from an aeroplane flying south.
