Our Technical Services and Research team does some pretty cool stuff throughout the city. One of which is mapping most of the trees! With the data you can do a lot of things, but we were excited when they designed a Fall Colors map to help you make the most of fall foliage without even leaving the city.
Check out your route on your walk home, to the Metro, or even to the park and see what color changing trees you may find along the way. This map highlights the top 5 showy fall color trees, along with other trees whose leaves change colors.
Now get out there and enjoy those trees before another polar vortex hits! P.S. Stay tuned for next week when we highlight metro accessible fall foliage walking tours throughout the city.
