Katsura Tree Leaves Are Turning Yellow And Dropping In The Middle Of Summer

Question From: R. Moore - Bellingham, Washington, United States
Q: Hello Nancy, My question is? I have what I believe to be a Katsura tree it was very full of leaves early in summer but it has been losing leaves lately they are turning yellow and dropping I live in Bellingham Wa and we have had unusually warm weather for about a month is this a normal thing other than that the tree seems to be in a healthy condition. Best regards Robert

A: It is never normal for a tree to loose leaves except in fall when they go dormant. If it were my tree I would get an on-site inspection from a certified arborist. To find a professional near you go to www.tcia.org and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
