I can't believe nobody has mentioned California. When I lived in San Jose, most of the trees don't lose their leaves. It's green pretty much year round!

A few pecans and oaks are stragglers. Everything is bloomed out now as I type. The delta had earlier buds this year than we did for some reason. A friend over there tells me she thinks that sometimes we tend to stay cool longer in the western part of the state than they. Maybe so I don't know but she does keep up with Lousiana gardening and weather.

so many people are listing northern cities, but no places have green trees longer than places in the southeast where it's wet and warm most of the year: Atlanta, Houston, Miami, Orlando, New Orleans, Shreveport, etc.

The OP's thread title is poorly worded. Here is the question from post #1:
Quote:
What city has the latest green up of its trees in America? And when does it happen?
Minneapolis greens up later than Denver, which is later than a lot of other places, e.g. Pittsburgh, Champaign, Il.

Atlanta's a bit cooler than those other cities, and is at a considerably higher elevation, as well as a higher latitude.

Miami: Green year round, for the most part.
Orlando: half of the broad-leaf trees are deciduous, half are evergreen. Leaves off the trees from Late December to early March

New Orleans/Houston: leaves off trees from Mid December to Early March

Shreveport: Leaves off trees from early/mid December to early/mid March

Atlanta: Leaves off trees from late November/early December to late March/Early April

well elevation doesn't have that much to do with it because Atlanta is very rich with green most months out of the year.

And the leaves in southeast Texas (Houston) don't come back early/mid March. More like late March/ early April

I'm referring to the first buds. Here in Atlanta, we don't have full leaves on most of the trees until mid April.

All areas of the south are more green than brown throughout a majority of months in the year.
