Fun Fact: Trees in Transition – Colorful Counties

Did you know the Maryland Department of Natural Resources features a weekly fall foliage report every year starting in September?

It’s true! The department highlights the trees’ transition each week with reports from experts with Maryland state forest and parks. The reports also include photos from various counties submitted by outdoor enthusiasts who capture the changing colors. Counties in Western Maryland are typically the first to see changes in the leaves. Garrett County has hit its peak just this week, while counties of the lower shore, such as Worcester, have yet to see any change.

Check out this week’s foliage report, submit a photo or sign up to receive the weekly report through mid-November.
