DCNR Issues First Weekly Fall Foliage Report - 4 Counties Approaching Best Color

On September 29, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources issued its
first Weekly Fall Foliage Report showing four counties are already approaching best color-- McKean, Potter, Susquehanna and Wayne counties.

After a long summer drought, Pennsylvania forests were quenched by some much-needed rainfall this month, arresting premature leaf drop. 

Fall seemed to arrive right on time, and seasonable to below-average temperatures should compel steady changes throughout Commonwealth forests. 

Drier forests this summer meant fewer leaf fungi observed throughout the state, setting the stage for what could be a notably vivid fall season.
