Professor Art DeGaetano says conditions this summer were favorable for New York's trees to produce vibrant fall colors.

Cornell Professor Art DeGaetano says the conditions this summer were favorable (adequate rain and moderate temperatures) for trees to make sugars that help produce their colors. He expects fall colors to peak in the Adirondacks and Catskills in the next two weeks, and in Central New York by the second week of October.
