Default Cool Weather Time to cutoff the Leaves?

My large ice cream, apple and goldfinger here in Ga zone 8b have really slowed down in growth with 60 degree days and 40's at night. I want to get them protected for winter but to do that I need to cutoff the leaves.

Is it okay to go ahead and cut the leaves off?

They have survived a light frost but I don't want to wait until it is freezing cold outside to get them setup for the winter.
Thinking outside the peel always.
