UMaine Extension’s Jemison in TV Foliage Report

University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialist John Jemison was interviewed by Channel 5 (WABI) for a report on the coming fall foliage season. Jemison explained how chlorophyll and other pigments in leaves photosynthesize as the summer wanes, which turns leaves primarily from green to bright yellow, red and orange. The timing of the color change can be dependent upon a variety of factors, he said, but foliage normally starts to color in early October.
