2014 Fall Foliage Report – October 1
Peak fall foliage conditions for much of the state are being reported in this week's Fall Foliage Report.
From Fort Kent down through Bangor in the central part of the state, the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is now reporting peak leaf color with low leaf drop of less than 30%.
According to Gale Ross, Fall Foliage spokesperson, “The colors of fall are reflecting off the water throughout Moosehead Lake in Greenville (Zone 5) as the foliage is approaching peak conditions this weekend. Forest rangers are reporting that the maples throughout Maine are casting fiery red colors in central and western Maine as well, with low (30%) leaf drop.”
