The season's final foliage report, released Wednesday afternoon by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, said peak colors remain around Augusta, including the China and Belgrade Lakes regions, and along the coast from Camden south. Leaf drop is moderate, with fewer than half of the trees bare of leaves in those regions, the report said.
Foliage in the rest of the state is reported to be past peak, with leaf drop moderate or high.
