Leaves change color based on a variety of factors including light level, temperature, soil conditions and more. Here in Vermont, the color starts in northern regions and at higher elevations, progressing southward and downward into the valleys. 

Each foliage year differs. Using GIS data, VCGI has developed an overview of last year's progression.
