The Q&A Archives: Trees Turning Color In July

Question: We had French Drains installed in our yard in May.The trees near the digging are looking as though it is October. Are we going to loose them?

Answer: It is possible that they suffered significant root damage during the digging and any change in drainage patterns can also have a major effect on established trees; color change and even leaf drop would be signs of that type of stress. You might want to consult with a professionally trained and certified arborist on site as to the prognosis for the trees.
