Tree turning color early signals health problem

Early Warning Signs

Is your tree in distress? August is usually a great time to savor the last days of summer. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when trees show the first signs of distress.

Sycamores, Oaks, Maples and other hardwoods should be in full leaf and green through September. If a tree has health issues, fall may appear to come early. Here are the top three signs to watch for:
1. Premature color change
2. Early leaf drop
3. Branch die-back or Flagging

Root problems or diseases such as Anthracnose and Bacterial Leaf Scorch are the most likely culprits. Your Giroud Arborist can diagnose the cause and determine the best treatment.
