If you have driven along the Interstate and even parts of Downeast Maine, you can’t miss the fact that the leaves are beginning to turn in some pockets. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry released their first Fall Foliage Report for the 2017 Fall Foliage Season on Wednesday, September 13th. This is the 58th year that the Department has released foliage reports.

According to Gale Ross, Maine’s Fall Foliage Spokesperson “While Maine did experience a dry summer, our weather going forward determines the foliage outlook. We are still experiencing warm days followed by cool nights, which is what is required to set us up for a glorious season.”

Typically Northern Maine (Zones 6 and 7) reach peak conditions the last week of September into the 1st week of October. The rest of the State’s progression of color occurs from North to South in Mid-October. Coastal Maine typically reaches peak conditions in mid to late October.

You can visit the state’s official foliage website to sign up to receive weekly reports by email. There’s also a Facebook Page and Instagram Page
