Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
To Australians on this forum, since most in the USA are experiencing an early Spring and we had a mild winter compared to Europe's very harsh winter, what is your upcoming autumn like right now ?
Is it early, the same, mild or colder than usual ?

Most importantly :
Do most or only a few deciduous tree species shed their leaves this time of year there ?
What month do they begin losing leaves and what month are those knds of trees bare ?

Just wondering and thanks in advance for those who answer seriously.

Re: Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
To my knowledge there are very few Australian native deciduous trees. Here on the west coast, because of our warm autumn the non native decidous trees don't lose their leaves until very late autumn/early winter. Some non natives don't lose their leaves at all even in winter, because of the relatively warm temperate climate in comparison to their native lands winter climate. There are some tropical plants that lose their leaves in the winter down here in the soutwest of the state, but even then not until late autumn/early winter. Those trees/shrubs that do lose their leaves during winter are only bare for a week or two before starting to bud again.
It may be different on the east coast because our climate is very differnt. About the only thing we share as far as weather goes is the seasons, even then the difference between east and west can be quite stark. This summer and autumn has been coolish and wet on the east coast, whereas on the west here it has been very hot and dry.

Still freaking hot. Trees lose leaves around June.

Very few decidious trees in Aus.

That being said, have noticed some differences in the trees responses to the seasons.

Re: Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
It has been strange. I would say that the trees are slow to lose those leaves compared with about 2 years ago, yet someone else (lives up in the hills) said things had turned early ths year.

All I can say is that the colours havent really changed yet and most trees are 90% covered.

Oh BTW this is Victoria.

Oh and not sure what Australian natives lose their leaves, its mostly the Exotics.

Re: Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
It's hard to say OP because we had super mild summer. Our weather patterns are still out of whack due to el Nino and la nina.

It's been raining here pretty consistency for the last few weeks, but we are only a few years out of a 7 year drought.

Re: Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
I think everything is on cue for a rainy season...especially the rain..LOL

It was a milder summer with a few searing hot days but not like it has been in the past.

I feel that the last three years have been milder and the year before (2009) that I felt that summer started in August.

Looking forward to winter

Re: Australians - question about autumn leaves / trees
Its supposed to be autumm but we have had 2 very hot days in a row where i live which has been nice as we had NO summer at all. We have had our leaves falling the same as usual here for this time of year. We are hoping that we will have a warm winter as we had no summer and it was actually cold where I live. So knowing that the weather is crazy hoping that maybe winter will be warm. Raining non stop for months and months here. Crazy
