I really do not know what the effect of 5-6 days with no sunlight would be- other than to cause mass panic among the human population!

It is possible that the trees would go into an early dormancy, but it may just happen with the leaves turning brown, rather than having colors first. I really do not know. Very cold temps would probably have the same effect, brown, not colors.
