Southeast United States
Foliage Report #14

October 18, 2003

The mountains in the Southeast are showing a great deal of color as the foliage season progresses. Peak conditions can be found in most of West Virginia, and in portions of western Virginia and North Carolina. Elsewhere in the region, the color change is mostly moderate to high, with the exception of Delaware and eastern sections of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina where the change remains at or below 30 percent. In the higher elevations of northeastern West Virginia, the foliage color is past peak.

Leaf drop is only a concern where the foliage conditions are at or past peak.
