shrug-l: Aerial Photography Question

It has been common practice here in Georgia that you do not fly aerial
photography outside a very limited window of January to March. The
reason given has been to minimize tree cover. Now I was driving through
South Georgia this week and noticing that 80 to 90% of the trees are
pines. I also noticed that by and large the hardwoods, those that are
near structures, are either far enough away not to interfere or are
below the roof lines. That would seem to negate the tree cover issue.
Given that logic, are we, at least in South Georgia, limiting ourselves
for no good reason? My thought is we are.
I was wondering what others, especially those involved in Photogrammetry
and tax parcel mapping, might have to say on this issue. I was also
wondering what is the norm in Florida given the lack of a leaf-off
