Fall Foliage Report
Virginia’s Forestry Department is all about educating people on the health and beauty of Virginia nature, and during the autumn season, that means keeping nature-lovers updated about how and when leaves are changing color. It gives weekly reports that include when trees in each part of the state are expected to change and what colors each type of tree will exhibit when fall is in full swing. Colors are expected to be at their boldest in October, which leaves you with some time to plan your next trip to some of the best views of autumn leaves in the area.
