How long do the multi-colored leaves stay on the trees?

We live in Florida and I really want to go north for a few days so my daughter could see the changing leave colors, but my dh hasn't been able to get away from work, even for two days yet. Will the colors be all gone by December?

  • Well, depends on where you go probably, but I'd doubt if there will be any left. We've got snow here and no leaves on the trees - though the hoar frost is very pretty on the trees. But soon after they change colour, they dry up and any wind will blow them off. I am up here in Canada though, so maybe not so far north there might be some left.

  • Thanks, I'm thinking like Georgia to North Carolina. A short drive for us. Maybe there is hope for us, maybe not? :( Sigh... next year.

  • Depends on how soon the storms roll in.

  • I would say yeah, they will be gone. Where are you going? In Wisconsin they are all gone by the end of October.
