Fall Colors Foliage Report

red foliage

Bright reds came on after the rain.

Maine fall colors have come on strong this last week. Rain rejuvenated the tree health. Then a few dry days, sunshine and a light frost was just what we needed to update our foliage report to moderate colors. The reds became brighter, and we are saying “Hello Yellows”. The striped maples are beautiful.

Fall Foliage Report for This Week

October 2015 – 10/7 – Moderate autumn colors – 35-55% range with leaf loss varying depending upon the trees running at overall about 15 – 3o%. Along with the rains came some wind. A delightful time to take a walk while the colors are vibrant.

This year the state of Maine did not experience a typical New England Maine summer. Maine weather varied greatly with some areas seeing record rainfall to some areas seeing very little. Autumn foliage this fall will vary based on where you travel.

Northern Maine had a very dry summer. as of 4 days ago guests stated there is no color in the area. When driving to Greenville, they started seeing fall colors. We had periods of rain and days of sunshine.

We are seeing the Birch trees with higher then usually leaf loss. They always drop leaves first. Will have to see if the yellows come on. Once the color starts, we see changes up to 20% each week.

Fall Foliage Reports – From The “Maine Fall Girl”

Fall foliage reports

Hi, I am the “Maine Fall Girl” – aka –  Heather Davis – My husband, Ron and son Trevor,  have 14 years of New England fall tourism and hospitality experience. As a leaf ambassador and corresponder for fall foliage forums over the years we were inspired to start our own fall blog. Here is what has been happening in Maine. I postponed posts, the last two weeks as there was not much exciting happening. Little fall color changes seen in last several weeks until now.  The few cold nights and frost advisories have made a difference. Fall foliage color is 10 – 20% prevalent with color changing daily.  Some trees are starting to crown and the maples outside my window are starting to show signs of reds and oranges.

You will also find Maine Travel information for The Cozy Moose and Special T Adventures at Google +, Facebook and Twitter.
