Foliage Report October 4th

The one thing about Mother Nature, she’s going to do things on her own time, and it appears this year, that Mother Nature is delaying the peak foliage by about a week. In the latest Foliage Report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, rangers are reporting about a 70 percent color for the upcoming Columbus Day weekend for Northern Maine while the remainder of the state is at a 40 to 50 percent color change. There is a low leaf drop reported throughout the entire state.

According to Gale Ross, the Maine Fall Foliage Spokesperson “I’m going out on a limb here and say that because of the warm weather we’ve been experiencing, it appears the progression of color is trailing about a week behind.Ideal conditions call for shorter, warmer days, followed by longer cool nights to move the colors along. This all translated into good news for our mid-to-late October leaf peepers.
