New England’s Fall Foliage Has Slow Start

CBS News reports

Across New England, much of the forests remain a deep, verdant green, thanks to unusually warm temperatures in early September that have delayed the start to the fall foliage season, according to Marek Rzonca, the founder of The Foliage Network, which taps a network of foliage watchers to report on their region’s fall color. Only a few spots in New England have even reached “low color,” according to the site’s latest reports.

“With the extended warm spell we had it’s reasonable to expect it will delay the onset of full color development,” said Michael Snyder, the commissioner for Vermont’s Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, who is also a forester. That being said, he added, “This is very much within the historical range within variation of late summer weather and the development of fall color.”
