Leaves a month late falling

Many of my trees are way late dropping leaves. No color change or fading. They are about a month behind normal. All my fruit trees except the plums are still fully foliated. Should I defoliate manually if they don’t get the message? Or am I worrying about nothing. The apples and peaches seem to be still growing.

Most of the non fruit deciduous trees seem way behind too.


I wouldn’t be concerned about the trees. Seasons appear to be late this year. Also, my normal seasons end later than yours and it’s not a problem for the trees.


It’s late here too I’m about to rake my backyard. I did it once already but it’s covered again. Fruit trees usually go from green to dead leaves. Many exceptions though.

Wow they keep falling. I did what I could…
