It’s that time of year again. How are your leaves coming along? Leave us a comment.
Maine forestry officials say peak foliage colors have begun to appear in far northern Maine.
The state’s weekly fall foliage report says forest and park rangers are reporting that trees are at least 75 percent toward their peak color change with minimal leaf drop in all of Aroostook County.
High foliage color between 50 and 75 percent is being reported in the Greenville and Jackman areas in northwest Maine, while moderate foliage color is being reported in the Rangeley region across the state to the eastern Maine coast.
Southern and central Maine for the most part are experiencing low color change so far.

Houlton, Maine — Riverfront Park has a new visitor.
On Sept. 20, Forest Hart’s fourth of 12 “Bear Tracks” bronze statues was added to Houlton’s Riverfront Park, replacing a moose sculpture created by Glenn Hines.
Hines had leased his sculpture to the town for $1, with an expectation that the Riverfront Park Committee would raise $25,000 over three years to pay for the statute. The moose remained with the town from June 2009 to July 2012, but when the money wasn’t raised, Hines removed his sculpture in anticipation of selling it to someone in Brooklyn.
