Foliage colors approaching peak in northern Maine

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Conservation officials say the northern half of Maine is more than halfway toward peak foliage as the state’s trees continue showing their fall colors.

The Maine Department of Conservation said the region from roughly Greenville north is now experiencing high foliage conditions, with colors 50 to 70 percent toward peak.

Moderate colors are showing up in a swath across central Maine from Rangeley and Bethel to Bangor and Calais.

Trees in southern Maine and along the coast are just starting to show their colors.
