My 20 year old Norway Maple (I think) is changing colors very early. The last few years it has done this on a few branches. It is much worse this year. I have another Maple in the yard that looks fine. Any ideas on what's going on?
Here's a pic
It's called heat and drought :-) Some trees react more severely than others.
Unless that color change is also accompanied by dry, crisp foliage (can't see at that distance), I'm not sure you have a lot to wrry about. If the drought persists, a few deep waterings should help.
Thank you! That is the answer I was hoping for. The leaves do not look dry and crisp and they are not falling. Thanks for responding.
