Colorful fall foliage expected in Maine

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA  — Conservation officials are expecting a colorful fall foliage season in Maine.

Bill Ostrofsky of the Maine Forest Service says he's expecting vibrant colors given the vigorous healthy foliage on the state's maple trees and the moderate summer weather.

In its first weekly foliage report of the season, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry reports that the northernmost part of the state is already experiencing subtle color changes.

But the peak season is still weeks away. The colors typically reach top form from early to mid-October.

Foliage reports are available online.
