(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – The forestry division of the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has been monitoring trees as much of the state remains in the grip of a moderate drought.

DEEP division of forestry director Chris Martin says there’s one sign they look for when determining if a tree is under stress as a result of the lack of rain and that’s early fall color.

Martin says a good, soaking rain from any of the weather systems in the tropics would help.

He adds they’ll have a good indication of what kind of foliage season is in store for Connecticut in the coming weeks
