Fall foliage report for 18 August 2012 — 4 Comments

  1. Hi Jeff. Thanks for sharing all the info. We are coming out to Vermont and Maine the weeks of oct 8th and 15th. What do you think are chances are of seeing some fall color?


    • As of right now I would say your chances are outstanding. The week of Columbus Day is great for Anywhere from the White mountains to northern Massachusetts. And in Maine from the western portions near lake Sebago up to Rangely (although the chances of good color at Rangely are best early and not the end of the week) and into Central Maine (Augusta should be good)
      I would watch my site of course but also the Mainefoliage website (they will send you email updates on their foliage) and at has a foliage page also (link is on my sidebar).

      I hope this helps.

  2. I agree 100%!! Last year was wicked bad so probably anything would be better… BUT, at least in my neck of the woods {the Shouth Shore of Mass between Boston and the Cape} there has been a good ammount of rain lately as well as some nice cool temps at night. There are more trees thinking about changing every day and like Jeff said some insect damage. I keep meaning to stop and take pictures of the color. Maybe I will get a chance today :). I did have to wear a sweatshirt last night which was exciting, lol.

    • Waiting for your pictures iris! I think out of everything the trees are facing it may actually be the insect damage that will be hardest thing this year for them to overcome.
