"All indications show that we could have a pretty good season this year," said Wendy Burnett, director of public relations for the Georgia Forestry Commission. "We should see lots of color, and since we haven't had really much of a drought, the trees should hold onto the leaves for a little while. So we should be able to enjoy it for a while. "It's all about the weather," she said, referring to the factors that shape a vibrant leaf season. "... We've had plenty of rainfall. So once we start having cooler nights and consistently cooler [temperatures] during the day as well, then that really will make the colors start to change and to pop and to really start putting on a show for us. [The season's peak] varies usually between mid-October to late October. This year, I would suggest that it's probably going to be closer to late October because we're not seeing much of anything at this point." To help leaf watchers select the most colorful driving routes, the Georgia Forestry Commission is posting weekly updates on its website. "Every week, we do a leaf-watch report. Our foresters go out and do a couple of different drives," Burnett said, referring to north central, northeast and northwest Georgia.

"Above and beyond these figures, the forests provide Georgians with an estimated $37 billion in ecosystem benefits annually," says Wendy Burnett, public relations director at Georgia Forestry Commission, a state agency responsible for protecting and preserving the state's forest resources.

By partnering with the U.S. Forest Service, the commission tracks forest inventory measurements across the state to ensure long-term sustainability.
"Forests lost to urbanization have been offset primarily by farmlands being converted back to forestlands," Burnett says.

"Our crews are still out there, strengthening and reinforcing the containment lines around it," Georgia Forestry Commission spokeswoman Wendy Burnett said earlier Thursday afternoon when she reported the blaze was holding to the 5 acres she originally reported.

"We're basically waiting for it to burn out, or waiting for us to have a "significant amount of rain, and by that I mean 2 inches to get it out enough to look around," Burnett said.
Until a dousing rain, smoke will continue to hang over west Bibb County along Interstate 475 near Mercer University Drive.
Motorists are urged to use caution especially in the cooler hours.
"Smoke might wind up settling on the roadways," Burnett said.

"Basically what [a forester told me] ... [cached]

"Basically what [a forester told me] is that as long as fall dries out a little bit - as long as we're not getting quite as much rain in the fall - and we get some cool nights over the next couple of weeks, we can expect a pretty good showing this year for the fall leaf season," said Wendy Burnett, director of public relations for the Georgia Forestry Commission. "... If not, then he said the leaves would probably turn pretty quickly and turn loose pretty quickly as well.

"We usually start our leaf watch, which you can follow along on our blog on the first week, sometimes the second week of October, and it will run through probably the first or second week of November," she said, adding there is a link to the blog on the Georgia Forestry Commission's website.
