In Pennsylvania, we like to brag about our trees. At this time of year, we can be downright obnoxious, but consider these facts: nearly 60 percent of Pennsylvania is covered by trees; we have 134 species of trees; and we have a longer and more varied fall foliage season than any other state in the nation.

While some portions of the state along the northern tier are a little past their prime, the next couple of weekends are bound to shine in the central and southern parts of the state. For the latest on the leaf conditions, check out the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry’s fall foliage weekly reports on the fall foliage web page (http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/stateforests/fallfoliage/index.htm).
