Maine Anticipates Spectacular Fall Foliage

September 10, 2014 Marks the Official Launch of Season

 

Today is the official start of Maine’s fall foliage season.  The 2014 Fall Foliage Report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry reports that the northernmost area of the state is still green with hints of color.

“Ever so subtle changes are occurring in the northern regions of the state (zones 6 and 7), but right now we are still on track for a typical fall foliage season with northern Maine reaching peak conditions by the end of September into the first week of October.  The rest of the state’s progression of color will start occurring from north to south in mid-October. Coastal Maine typically reaches peak conditions October 13 through October 25,” according to Gale Ross, Maine’s fall foliage spokesperson.
