Jemison speaks with WVII about delayed fall foliage

John Jemison, a soil and water quality specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with WVII (Channel 7) for a report about the late start to Maine’s fall foliage season. The warmer-than-usual weather has the state’s roughly $600 million annual leaf-peeping tourism industry on hold, according to the report. “It has certainly been muggy as of late and that does tend to push the foliage change back some,” Jemison said of the delay.
