Fall Foliage Report - Nov. 7, 2012

Most oaks hold their green color well into fall, then turn some shade of red, although the colors are not as bright as those of maples. Many areas of the Piedmont have passed peak and their transition should be complete by mid-November, with some species of oaks lagging a little bit. East of Richmond in the Coastal Plain of Virginia, color change is still evident, and fall color can be found on the Peninsula.
