Only the highest mountains in the SE will have deciduous trees, but even lower elevations on the mountains (Asheville) are warm enough for evergreens.

VIRAL needs a new hobby, or a boyfriend/girlfriend, or a cat, or SOMETHING! Every post is like a broken record "Texas is a fail in climate"/"the south is too hot for deciduous trees."

Lemme know when so I can mark it in my calendar.

There are deciduous trees in Hawaii, even at sea level, so the same must be true of the South.

Almost 96% of us disagree with the OP but the OP is still right. Kind of like arguing with a sign board. Maybe we should just give the OP a sign. {sign} lol

Multi-tasking, learn it.

The deciduous trees in Hawaii aren't what I am referring to, since they will lose their leaves due to dry season/drought in leeward areas. The deciduous trees I am referring to in this thread are the "four-seasons" fall color deciduous trees.

I live in the Charlotte area. I'm looking out my window right now at tons of deciduous trees in my backyard and the back end of my neighborhood. No matter what era of history they're from, etc., etc., etc., deciduous trees have flourished here in the South for many generations. I mean, I'm looking at them now, lol. Interesting thread, nonetheless.

I just drove 265 miles from Atlanta to Savannah and there were "deciduous"' trees the whole way. In 3-4 months they'll all turn colors, lose their leaves and go bare (dormant). In March they'll sprout new mint green leaves. This has been going on FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS! I'm not worried.

this reminds me of that thread where the OP argued that the south is a rainforest.
