The Magic of Fall in New York





The Nature Conservancy in New York Encourages

State Residents and Visitors to

Take Advantage of the Autumnal Beauty of
The Empire State

New York, – If you’re looking for that perfect (and affordable!) weekend getaway, you need look no further than your own backyard – relatively speaking.  “One of the great beauties of the Northeast is the change of colors in the fall in New York,” says Bill Ulfelder, State Director of The Nature Conservancy in New Yorka productive champion of nature’s bounty, as well as sustainable, responsible business and development throughout the state for nearly 60 years.  Mr. Ulfelder and his family are taking a modest car trip Upstate from their home in the city so they can “enjoy the majesty and diversity of the Empire State’s forests,” he says.  Information regarding individual road trips, as well as special foliage tours, can be found on I New York, the state’s official tourism site.


From north to south, east to west, fall foliage in New York is in full bloom from the last two weeks of September to the first week in November.  Specific areas reach their peak as follows:

1)                 New York City and Long Island – last 2 weeks of October / 1st week of November.

2)                 Hudson Valley and Capital Springs – 2nd and 3rd weeks of October.

3)                 The Catskill and Adirondack Mountains – last 2 weeks of September.

4)                 Central Leatherstocking, the Finger Lakes, and Chautauqua-Allegheny – 1st and 2nd weeks of October.

5)                 Greater Niagara and Thousand Islands – 2nd and 3rd weeks of October



As the light and dark green leaves of summer change into their autumnal best, the richness and diversity of colors in New York are second to none: the shimmering bronze of American Beech; the bold orange/rust of American Hornbeam and American Sycamore; the deep red and burgundy of Flowering Dogwood and Red Maple; the various gold tones of the Bitternut Hickory, Black Walnut, Common Hoptree, Common Hore Chestnut and Quaking Aspen; and the blended earth-tones of the Black Cherry and the Sassafras.


“In addition to their year-round beauty, the trees of New York provide people with clean air, shade, food, lumber and paper – and for countless birds and animals, they are shelter, home and nourishment,” says Ulfelder.  “Too few people appreciate how big and beautiful New York’s forests are.  They don’t realize that we have so much in our backyard,” he says.  “Taking a few hours, or even a few days, to appreciate their splendor during Fall Foliage season is both a pleasure and a vital lesson in nature for the whole family.  It’s something that shouldn’t be missed.”
