Unless you live under a rock, you may have noticed that the Fall season is upon us here in Northern Maine.

The colors are gradually changing, and the Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry reports low 10 – 30%  color change and very low leaf drop so far.

Gale Ross, Fall Foliage Coordinator for Maine said, “We are right on target for a glorious fall foliage season. With the low leaf drop we anticipate that the northern part of the state will soon be a tapestry of beautiful colors.” 

For more information visit the state’s official foliage website www.MaineFoliage.com and receive weekly reports by e-mails. Visitors and natives can share their photos of the riot of color throughout the state as the leaves gradually change.
