September 18th, 2020 State Foliage Report

Frost has paid an early visit to pockets of the state as this week graces Vermont with cool, crisp nights and warm, sunny days—conditions that contribute to our most vibrant foliage. And while the best of fall color is yet to come, signs of the season abound. Forests in many parts of the state are transitioning from their lush summer green to the subtle olive and bronze that comes just before brighter fall colors pop. This shift is most noticeable now at higher elevations and in northern parts of the state. A hike, bike ride, or drive over one of Vermont’s many mountain passes is a great way to take it in.

Meanwhile, on village greens, roadsides, and backyards throughout Vermont, many standalone trees are already turning, creating vibrant presentations that surprise the eye. Maple trees are often the most striking of these soloists, singing out in shades of red, orange, and even dark purple.
