Please tell me my Maple isn't history...

md0077July 26, 2012

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?

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.
