Usually don’t wrap tree before leaves fall off, but this year there are still green leafs on the tree. I’m leaving for several months and can’t leave it unprotected for winter. What do you recommend? Remove them or wrap with them on. Not sure.

Generally, you will cut them back and wrap them in burlap with several layers. Mulch the root area as well.
