strange limp leaves - what to do???
I have two 25 yr old maples out front that were planted by the developer. They are not much fun: spherical shape, almost no fall color but what do you expect from Toll Bros. Probably the cheapest trees they could find. Someone called them swamp maples and I don't have any other ID on them. One tree has a problem in that before fall arrives, its leaves go limp and many drop off green. This has been happening for several years but with the heat/drought this year it happened by August. The other tree is perfectly fine. Same thing happened last year when we had tons of rain so I doubt it is water related.
My young children love the trees so I won't replace them but can someone tell me if there is something I can do for the wilting maple? Will it get worse?
