Is something wrong w/ a Coralbark Maple that is mostly green-leaved, but is turning orange/red at the top in June?
I have 3 others nearby -they all get the same amount of sun, water/rain - this is the only one that looks like it would appear in the fall.

The early color change indicates a stress of some kind, but I'm not sure why, especially if others in the are look fine. There's not much you can do to correct the problem until we figure out just what might be stressing it out. I'd just take a wait and see posture. It may snap out of it all on its own. Wish I could offer a solution!
