Tree Leaves With Brown Edges

Asked August 9, 2019, 3:45 PM EDT

Hello and first of all, thank you.

My question is about the trees in(I believe they are maples) our front yard and why they are turning yellow and the edges of the leaves are brown and look like they are dead. We live at roughly 112th and Tower road in the Reunion community of Commerce City. The trees have been here a little over a year and the same thing is happening all along the street, not just ours. I've attached two pics and hopefully you can clearly see what I am talking about.

Thank you again.

Hello Mary,

Based on the photos that you attached this is leaf scorch on your maple tree. Typically, it can be caused by several factors such as improper watering or too much fertilizer. See below website for additional information.
