Day Quoted in Media Reports About Fall Foliage

Michael Day, an associate research professor of tree physiology and physiological ecology at the University of Maine, was quoted in articles on and Tap into West Orange about expected fall foliage conditions in New Jersey. “Adequate precipitation and lack of wind disturbances has resulted in trees with an exceptional amount of foliage still attached,” Day told He also was quoted in an report about foliage conditions in the Northeast. With a frost and freeze occurring in parts of New York and areas farther north early in September, Day said the region will be in “good shape” for leaf-peepers.
