Residents and visitors to Pennsylvania can now view reports on fall foliage across the commonwealth. 

On Thursday, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources launched its annual fall foliage report, giving tourists – and residents – the ability to track changing foliage across the commonwealth and find the best spots for viewing the colorful leaves.

“Each year we are blessed with the opportunity to view some of the world’s most beautiful fall foliage here in the commonwealth,” DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said. “It is important to remember that Pennsylvania is a large state with more than 130 native tree species. This gives residents and tourists plentiful opportunities to see a wide array of colors, ensuring every autumn.”

Pennsylvania has a “longer and more varied fall foliage season than any other state,” according to DCNR. 

The report will be updated weekly on Thursdays.
