Fall foliage reaching its peak in the North

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Maine forestry officials say peak foliage colors have begun to appear in far northern Maine.

The state's weekly fall foliage report says forest and park rangers are reporting that trees are at least 75 percent toward their peak color change with minimal leaf drop in all of Aroostook County.


High foliage color between 50 and 75 percent is being reported in the Greenville and Jackman areas in northwest Maine, while moderate foliage color is being reported in the Rangeley region across the state to the eastern Maine coast.

Southern and central Maine for the most part are experiencing low color change so far.
