For the latest on the leaf conditions, check out the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry’s fall foliage weekly reports on the fall foliage webpage. Learn more about the common trees of Pennsylvania from this booklet. And finally, check out some of the most spectacular places to go for leaf peeping on our fall foliage story map.
