The 2015 Maine Fall Foliage Season is Upon Us
Today is the official start of Maine’s fall foliage season and even though the weather resembles July’s, it is time to start planning for the upcoming fall season.
Currently, the 2015 Fall Foliage Report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry states that there are only slight changes to view in the forests.
"Right now we are expecting a typical fall foliage season with northern Maine (zones 6 and 7) reaching peak conditions the last week 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 mid-October through Oct. 24," according to Gale Ross, Maine’s fall foliage spokesperson.
Leaf peepers can visit the state’s official foliage website www.mainefoliage.com and sign up to receive weekly reports by e-mail. Visitors and natives can share their photos throughout the state as the progression of color begins.
