The first day of Fall is Friday, September 22nd, and already leaves are starting to turn. The latest Fall Foliage Report, September 20, 2017, from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is reporting moderate color (30-50 percent) in Northern Maine. Forest Rangers are reporting low color (10-30 percent) for the rest of the state.

Zones 6 and 7 typically reach peak conditions the last week of September-first week of October. Zones 3,4,5 typically reach peak around Columbus Day weekend.

According to Gale Ross, the fall foliage spokesperson “We have had summer-like weather leading up to the beginning of the fall foliage season; however we’re still on track for a typical season. As our weather takes a more seasonal turn, colors will start moving toward peak conditions in early to mid-October
