What’s wrong with my Variegated Norway Maple?

by | Mar 29, 2010 | Resources, Market News, Ask Pahl's Market

I have a variegated norway maple tree that I planted this year. The leaves are starting to turn brown and looks like they are dying.  Can you tell me what is wrong and what I need to do?

Dear Carolyn,
Without seeing the tree or where it is planted I am going to take a guess and say that your tree needs more water.  A newly planted maple tree needs lots of water, especially in the
later months of the summer.  Remember an inch a week at the very least, and that is an inch of water soaking into the ground all around that tree.  Lawn sprinklers don’t count.  Many times trees that are not getting enough water and suffering from stress will go into an early fall dormancy.  Your maple may be doing that.  Keep watering it until the ground freezes.  It will probably loose its leaves earlier than the other trees, but should come back next spring strong and healthy.
