WCAX gets answers to your fall foliage questions
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - This weekend is looking to be a great weekend to get out and see the foliage, but how far along are we in the season?
Vermont Forestry Commissioner Michael Snyder says it all depends on where we are in the state. He says in the north or northeast part of the state, the foliage is in the late stages. In the west -- the Champlain Valley and southern parts of the state -- Snyder says there is still great fall color to come and is in the mid-peak stage.
He says the dry weather we’ve been having actually isn’t necessarily bad for the foliage. The moderate drought does not hurt the tree, and evidence suggests it could actually enhance the colors. However, serious drought conditions can burn the leaves and turn them brown.
Watch the video above to see the entire interview with Snyder.
