Have you ever seen bare (not dead) trees in summer? What's the latest you've seen trees bare before leaf out?



I've never seen a tree that I was sure was alive, leafless in the summer. I've seen close, though. The catalpa's here didn't leaf out til mid-late May this year.

Probably early May

I saw a massive oak leaf out in July, I thought it was dead, it stuck out like a sore thumb for 2.5 months. I’ve also seen a few London Plane trees leaf out twice, in late April and late August, with a premature leaf drop in between the two.

I hate bare trees in summer. It makes me think about the fires in California and Greece and how this planet keeps getting warmer and warmer.

Have you? by the way, mid May is NOT summer, it’s still spring time. As for your question, during the heat wave and drought of summer 2012, I saw that some of the younger or more vulnerable species of tree suffered early leaf drop and/or early dormancy. In the years 2013 to 2018, some of the trees weakened by the 2012 drought have died between 2013 to present. So to answer your question no I have not seen many “Bare” trees during summer that were not dead.

Was it a particularly cold spring or summer or was it just a really odd oak? And a tree leafing out twice? Thats super weird haha.

I know its not summer, but I'm saying that's the latest I've seen any tree leaf out.

Bare trees and temps in 80s is pretty rare to have here but past few yrs its been happening with late winters lingering and early summer heat hitting.

80s and no shade feels weird.

Usually we get a quick explosion of leaves though.

May is typically late for being bare

Did that tree had leaves previously, but lost them suddenly? Or it's a late starter?
Some trees lose leaves due to sickness. Heat and drought stress will cause the tree to lose leaves that it cannot support with the available soil moisture.
Certain trees such as hackberry can drop all of the leaves and enter summer dormancy. Trees that are summer dormant should have supple twigs and healthy buds.

I'm more referring to late starters.
