The colors are “achanging” in SW Virginia from the VA Department of Forestry
Weekly Fall Foliage Report
Welcome to the Fall Foliage Report, brought to you by the Virginia Department of Forestry. Here’s our report for the weekend of November 3.
Cooler weather this past week brought the leaf colors out with a bang! Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, or any of western Virginia’s byways, and you’ll spot red and orange maples, deep red dogwoods, yellow beeches, golden hickories, and lots of other beautiful trees. This weekend should be near peak coloration for the mid to higher elevations throughout the western mountains. More good news: oak trees tend to change later, so there is more color yet to come.
Lower Blue Ridge elevations, the Shenandoah Valley and the Piedmont are behind the mountains, but there are good patches of color throughout those regions. In the Coastal Plain, you’ll often see the first color in low swampy areas, as well as on city and landscape trees. Along eastern roadways, look for saltbush beginning to open its frothy white blooms.
