Why is my tree dropping leaves in summer

09/07/2022

Dry and hot weather is stressful for trees. As Arborists we pray for cold wet summers!

Evergreen trees continually drop the leaves that are internal and shaded. These are inefficient at photosynthesis and therefore dropped.

It is when this is accelerated or when deciduous trees are dropping leaves before autumn that it is a concern.

They are dropping leaves as a result of stress. Leaves transpire valuable moisture, so with less leaves they are losing less moisture.

To help the tree, you should water it for the rest of summer.
