I remember when I lived in Northern MN sometimes the trees would not turn green until about the first of June and then by late September they would be bare. That is 3 1/2 months out of 12 with green trees.

Summers were beautiful but that is a long time for bare trees.

What city has the latest green up of its trees in America? And when does it happen?

Probably Anchorage or Fairbanks. I would guess that they don't have leaves on the trees until late May or early June.

Well besides places in Alaska, in terms of major cities in the lower 48, it would probably be Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

But you guys are blooming. Here in Milwaukee, there are barely any buds, still pretty bare.

The leaves were barely coming into the trees by mid May in Maine when I left college for the summer.

Really, I've noticed all the trees budding the past few weeks, but today I noticed after the recent rain that many trees on my block are fully blooming out with leaves. The block up from my apartment seems to be about 1/2 to 2/3 full sized leaves on the trees.

It really depends on what kind of trees they are.

Here in Michigan the trees don't turn green until the second week of May. So I guess Detroit and Grand Rapids would qualify for this list.
