i planted apple, persimmon and sawtooth oaks in Dec and they were just budding and the apples had leaves. They are in tree tubes, do you think the temps last night, 26 in my area, hurt them?

I am no expert. But I think if there where frost on the Apple leaves for 3-4 hours that may knock them back. It will not kill the tree of course, just make it have to grow knew leaves.

I think the sawtoothes will be fine, I don't know about persimmons.

in 07 the last frost was in early May. 2 weeks difference is a lot. our average final frost date is 4-12 so 4 or 5 days later isn't a big deal

The killing freeze of 2007 occurred around April 15th. However, we had had an early green-up that year, trees were far more advanced in leafing out and blooming, and the freezing temps were much lower than what we experienced last night (low 20s and even upper teens). That freeze was so severe, it killed the leaves on all of the trees. I've never seen that occur before.

I also remember this year because in mid March maybe we had record high temps for about a week high 80s which like you said we had a super early green up

Mr. Hawk, your persimmons should be just fine. If they are old enough, they will bloom and bear fruit. Persimmons generally bloom after the last frost and can bear fruit at 3-4 years old.
