I think that you're referring to the Oaks, not Pecan trees. Pecan trees have already bloomed out in Georgia. It is the oaks that are still somewhat sparse.

We'll be back in the 50s/60s early next week! ) When looking at the trees from a distance, you can see a faint green budding on them, and my crab tree has lots of nice little red leaves all over it. Most of the lawns you see are green (unless they were hit with snow mold )
In much of the south, the grass of choice is centipede or berumuda. With these two types of grasses, they do not turn fully green until sometime in May. While fescue can stay green throughout the summer, bermuda and centipede requires temperatures in the mid to upper 70s for daytime highs to stay green. I'd say that one-third to one-half of the lawns in metro Atlanta area are with centipede or bermuda. One-half uses fescue.

Keep in mind that it really depends on the type of tree. Native species to this area usually don't start to sprout leaves until the first two weeks of May, while imported varieties like dogwoods can begin as early as April 1.

The leaves are arriving much earlier than usual because it has been so warm. Highs have been in the 80s or 90s for three out of the last four days.

Same here. I've never seen the trees bloom so early here.

Still about 90% bud stage here yet, but a few are showing their green nicely. Another couple of weeks will make a huge change here.

What I am waiting for are the orchards to blossom out. Nothing beats a whole huge orchard covered with apple blossoms, or Cherry trees or Peach. Smells so good passing by.
