...and how long of a process is it?

By "turn green", I mean mostly developed leaves.

As a rule (I don't recall ever seeing an exception), deciduous trees here are bare at the beginning of May and in full foliage by the end of the month. Usually it's between the 1st and the 10th when they begin to sprout leaves, and by the 15th to 20th that they are fully developed.

Some are currently sprouting buds here, and some already have tiny little leaves. This is the first spring I've been here, so I don't know how long it takes for them to fully bloom. Of course, with all the conifers it's been pretty green all winter, anyway.

Never. It's too cold in Minneapolis and Cleveland for plant life to bloom. Remember, it snows all the time here...

South Texas, this past week. A week ago there weren't even any visible buds, now everything is completely leafed out and green. Mid March is normal.

The Bradford pears are already finished blooming and he leaves are fully on them. Some others, like the ash trees in my yard and some oaks, are putting on leaves now, while others have not yet really started.
