leaf peeper
A tree sightseer, who enjoys to observe the color change in their leaves, especially in the autumn.

Actually, Im a leaf peeper myself in May, and when the trail began its acute northwest ascent into the Berkshire foothills west of Greenfield, I found myself marveling at the thousands of pale shades of green and yellow and pink in the new May leaves that walled the roadside and formed a canopy overhead.
