The Q&A Archives: Yellowing Allee Elm

Question: My 3 year old Allee Elm's leaves are turning very yellow. It started around 2nd week in August. This seems far to early for fall color to begin. Just concerned something else could be the problem. Thank you!

Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am not able to diagnose the yellowing for you. Sometimes early fall color can be an indication of drought stress, but yellowing could be a sign of a soil deficiency or a pest or disease problem, or even overwatering, too. I would suggest you consult with your county extension and/or a professionally trained nurseryman to try to determine what is causing the color change. I hope it is nothing serious.
