With the arrival of autumn, we turn our attention to another one of the state’s great tourist attractions: fall foliage. We’ll learn about the economic impact leaf-peepers have on Maine and about some of the best places to visit to see spectacular fall colors. We’ll also discuss the makeup of Maine's forests, the physiology of trees, and how Maine’s foliage is affect by climate change.
