Since itís September and fall colors are just weeks away depending on a given location, I thought that it would be fun to keep track of where the trees are changing colors. I know in Central Indiana the trees here are pretty much still green but in about 5 or 6 more weeks(give or take), the trees in my part of the United States will Be beginning to change into the autumnal pastel colors as fall colors begin to paint the landscape, fall colors should be near or at peak by the middle of October in the Indianapolis area assuming all the weather and other factors are fairly constant, so, feel free to post pics of the trees(and other vegetation that changes colors), btw this is a thread for the entire Northern Hemisphere and is by no means restricted to North America
Knock yourselves out.

I use to drive truck and from around the NYC area I always enjoyed getting dispatched in the Fall up to Plattsburg, NY and then over the ferry to Burlington, VT and then down through CN or over to NH in the Fall. It is a beautiful trip for those that love the fall colors. They can be spectacular with the right amount of rain and cold weather. I think it is still early. The higher elevations do turn quicker than the lower elevations. Many of the local news programs announce the peak foliage times.

There are many areas of the Country that have great Fall foliage. We also have many great places in PA. I am sure you have many in Indiana.

Good luck chasing leaves!

Yes, it’s getting towards that time up north. Here in the Deep South though, it won’t be until December. I miss the fall in Ohio.

Here is a 2018 prediction map: https://fstoppers.com/nature/2018-us...raphers-284279. I don't think you made it on the map so far. Take note that, that if you slide the date slider that yours should change by the first or second week of October. Upstate NY and VT should be in good color towards the end of this month.

Wow, great map! I'm visiting NE KY mid October and looking very much forward to being near peak or peak.

Thank you! One thing that should help this year is that the gypsy moths were not that bad. And; we were not supper dry in the East like out West. Of course an early hard freeze can throw off the time line for that Foliage 'prediction' map. So, if you traveling just for the colors, you still have to check the weather.

First or second week in October here in Southern MN. Then it will be time to cruise over to the Mississippi for the big show and down to La Crescent for apples.

We have a bit of sumac and a scattering of maples beginning.
