2011's Unusual Foliage - Northern Woodlands Magazine

March 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

As many fellow photographers and hikers know all too well, thanks to a variety of unusual weather and climate events, the 2011 foliage season was unusual, and in many areas rather drab and/or short-lived. For an upcoming autumn issue of Northern Woodlands magazine, I'm putting together a text/photo article that details the relationship between climate and foliage on both short and long-term intervals, in the process addressing the anthracnose that affected sugar maples and other hardwoods, salt spray from Hurricane Irene, and the unusually mid autumn and how it reflects a long-term trend. Call it making the best of an often bad situation! The photo below shows late foliage at Quabbin Reservoir after the first of two unusual October snowstorms.
