DCNR Issues First Fall Foliage Report, Get Tips On The Best Spots For Viewing

On September 26, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources issued its first Fall Foliage Report with regional comments on factors influence foliage changes.
The deep-green of Pennsylvania’s foliage is largely unchanged throughout the state, but some areas are showing signs of drought due to the relative lack of rain in recent weeks. 
However, foresters throughout Penn’s Woods have noted some harbingers of the fall foliage season, observing some early color in black gum, birches, poplars, maples, sumacs, dogwoods, and sassafras. 
Above-average temperatures predicted in the 10-day forecast could delay onset of fall color in areas receiving sufficient rainfall but speed up the color change and subsequent leaf drop in dryer areas. 
Pennsylvania’s forests seem less affected by fungus this year and appear poised to deliver a great fall foliage season!
Visitors can get suggestions about the best spots to view fall foliage on the Penn’s Woods Fall Foliage story map and on the Pennsylvania Tourism Office website.
