Usually you don't see leaves falling here til late November or December. Even then, 40-60% of the trees are still green.

Majority of the Live Oaks wont drop until about March but don't expect to see the pretty color change. You can "look forward" to pollen from the Mountain Cedars (Juniper) in very late December or January.

NO JOKE! Last year was our first winter here & I was SHOCKED by the allergies the kids & I had! STOCK UP on allergy meds if you see them on sale....you'll probably need them.

I always remember it this way...

Christmas brings allergies.
Spring break brings out the rake.

If we have a gradual cooling down, you might see a bit of fall color in the maples and aspens. Some years are more colorful than others. Generall it goes from HOT to semi cold and all the leaves just turn brown! LOL

Trees down here are predominantly oaks of all varieties...with mesquite and cedar and of course others...none of which really turn and make for a beautiful fall. As wc said, the "Live" oaks stay green all through winter and don't actually lose their leaves until Spring. It's a total pia to have both in your yard....

The elms are starting to turn yellow in my area. Including the shiny new one in my front yard!

We've already had the leaves drop out here. The long drought and extreme heat caused many trees (and shrubs) all over this area to die or just to have brown, orangish or yellowish leaves hanging. Some recovered, some didn't. So fall color happened starting in summer and even after the rains started...it was very weird to see that! Anything that happens later will on will be anticlimatic.
