Autumn Blaze Maple leaves turning yellow and orange

Asked June 10, 2018, 6:51 PM EDT

The leaves on my Autumn Blaze Maple tree are turning yellow and orange (June 10, 2018), as if the leaves were turning color in autumn. This has never happened to this tree. The tree is healthy, about 15 years old, and has been pruned twice.

Most likely it is just weather related or the tree is under stress. If the tree is healthy and not too dry or too wet or has had trunk damage or something I wouldn't worry about it. If the tree was planted too deeply, you should be able to see the root flare, or the roots were allowed to circle the tree when it was planted, then it could have some problems.
