Nature out of balance

Asked August 13, 2018, 8:56 AM EDT

Why are some of the trees, particularly the maples, turning brown before chanicha color and extremely early?

Howard County Maryland trees and shrubs early fall color

We have had many questions this summer about maple trees losing leaves. Due to the wet weather, they have been subject to a couple of leaf spot diseases - anthracnose and phyllostica leaf spot. Even though the trees are losing their leaves early this will not cause serious long-term problems for the trees.
