Maine’s 2016 Foliage Season is One for the Record Books!
Augusta, ME (October 19, 2016) – The final 2016 fall foliage report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry reports past peak conditions throughout Maine.
“Without a doubt, 2016 will go down in the record books as being one of the most colorful fall foliage seasons as seen in the past seven years. It was apparent that the entire state reached peak or near-peak conditions in early to mid-October and the colors were spectacular and long lasting, according to Gale Ross, fall foliage spokesperson. “We’d like to thank our leaf peeping fans for sharing their awesome foliage photos with us to give those folks ‘from away’ who couldn’t be here this fall a virtual tour of why people flock to Maine in the fall. While the colors are now becoming a bit muted, there is still a small window to catch the reds, oranges and yellows. Oak trees are just starting to peak out,” Ross noted.
