Interesting article on what may occur in the New England states this coming 2020 season. Mass, VT, NH, CT and Maine all have a small narrative. What happened to RI??? :? :? :?

In regards to my own state of CT, I concur with everything Chris Martin, forestry director at the Connecticut Bureau of Natural Resources, spoke of. I would say he was "spot on". He touched on the drought and an early start to fall colors in northern CT. Exactly what I am experiencing first hand. I also agree with one statement, "Moderate drought stress on trees can actually “punch up” color this time of year", by Michael Snyder, Vermont state forester and commissioner of the Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation. I'm seeing exactly this in the extreme northwest corner of CT.

It would be interesting to see what transpires in the next two weeks. We REALLY need some rain. Hoping for the best, because the best is yet to come!!!!! :mrgreen:
