Foliage conditions throughout the state are still predominantly green. Slight color changes among some tree species, such as poplars, creeper, sweet gum, dogwood and maple, can be seen in higher elevations and some rural areas. Peak colors are expected in the mountains during mid to late October; the Piedmont and Coastal Plain are expected to peak during late October.
