WV Division of Forestry to provide fall foliage reports

Posted: Updated:

The end of September brings with it a change of color for the mountains of West Virginia.  The West Virginia Division of Forestry is prepared to share where the best color can be found in 2013.

According to the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, state foresters will put together weekly reports on what routes in the Mountain State are showing peak color.  Those reports will be issue beginning in October.  The weekly reports will include route numbers and specific points of interest.  They will be released each Thursday afternoon.

"The fall foliage season is a wonderful opportunity to showcase West Virginia's forests," said State Forestry Director Randy Dye. "What better people to proved foliage updates than the folks who know our woods the best - our state foresters?"

Currently, foliage at the highest peaks in Greenbrier, Nicholas, Webster, Pocahontas and Randolph Counties have the most color.  The first fall foliage report will be released on Thursday, Oct. 2013.
