I was looking thru images of Columbus, GA on google maps, and I saw this image. I couldn't believe how brown and lifeless the landscape looks. Really, it looks no different than PA in winter.

Is this photo accurate, or is there more greenery around in winter in columbus?

Take a look. And this photo was taken in the mild winter of 2012.

Nope, that's accurate for most of Georgia. There are a larger number of pines/evergreens outside of cities so that brings a Little green, and some places will plant winter rye grass to give the turf some "I'm still alive" look, but generally speaking winter looks like that.

The only plants in columbus and the rest georgia that doesn't loose there leaves in the winter is them invasive hedge bushes and the pine trees. Everything else looses there leaves and go bald.

Wow, that just does not look subtropical at all. I thought Georgia was had more winter greenery, but tbh Philadelphia looks more green than that in winter. That grass is just dreadful looking for winter.

On the other hand, here is the natural environment of coastal/southern GA in winter:

Cumberland Island, GA:

^Unmistakable winter green of the US coastal South that cannot be found anywhere near Philly. And before you say that the greenery is limited to the coast, go to forests in inland areas, such as Tifton, Waycross, or Valdosta, and you will see intense winter greenery as well.

Great picture. Columbus ga doesn't sit in southern ga and is not a coastal city. Columbus ga sits in west central georgia at the fall line of the southern piedmont where you have small hills and small mountains too the north of columbus ga and the upper coastal plan south of there. I would say that the coastal regions of georgia deep in south georgia and near the ocean have a greener winter than columbus. I think columbus has a slightly more harsh winter than south ga and coastal ga and so everything here in columbus dies and turns brown compared too south ga and coastal ga.
