I should rephrase, if you are on the southernmost part of the state in January, are there any parts that don't lose their green leaves? A silly question I suppose, but I have never driven straight south in the winter from up north to see where the frost line is.

This is pretty normal throughout the state ( I believe)

During the height of winter, January and February, daytime highs average in the low 50s, with overnight lows in the low-to-mid 30s. However, strong cold fronts periodically sweep through, bringing with them significantly chillier temperatures, as well as snow, sleet or ice. The highest snowfall totals occur in January -- the state averages 2 to 3 inches during that month. Snow generally falls in small amounts throughout the winter; Little Rock sees about 5 inches in a season. More snow falls farther northwest and in the higher elevations of the Ozarks, while in the southeast, the precipitation is more apt to fall as rain. Low-pressure systems also occasionally produce ice storms, rendering travel dangerous. The last snows and freezing precipitation of the winter typically occur in March.

Leaves will turn brown and fall off even in south Arkansas. Pine trees stay green. I've seen in snow 8" in Ashley County and get awful ice storms. And I've deer hunted in late November in 85 degrees swatting mosquitoes too. It does get below freezing at night typically in mid winter there.

One year, we got 30" of freaking snow. I thought I was in Chicago momentarily. It's been about three/four years ago but I was shoveling snow last year as well. The main roads are always taken care of but the back roads ( forget it). We are starting to equal Dallas on the ice issues. (Ice Storm in 2009 was bad)

OP , there is a noticeable freezing weather line south of Malvern Arkansas. North of Malvern sees much more ice and snow every year.
As posted above the whole state looses its hardwood leaves due to winter. But the pines and cedars stay green of course .
I think you will have to go to south Florida to see all the trees stay green year round.

You might be thinking of live oaks not losing their leaves. I'm not sure where the growing line for those starts. I know there are zero of them in north Arkansas.

The Jan freeze you are talking about in 2009 was out first full winter here. For some reason I don't remembe much snow. I remembe a few years since though like Chistmas in maybe 2010 and last year, 2014.

To the Op, other than the pine trees it doesn't really matter where you look, the treew will be bare in January. In fact my two favorite times of the year, living in AR: late Oct when all the leaves change color and right now, looking out the window and see all the beautiful green trees, after several month of bareness.

Responding to the title of the thread, rather than the "tree" question.... every part of Arkansas will experience winter precipitation, some more than others. North Ark may typically receive more snow, while South Ark will see ice about as often as it sees snow, if not more so.
